Travis Ford Being Sued By Former Oklahoma State Player

Head coach Travis Ford and Oklahoma State are being sued by a former player who claims he was hazed, coerced into taking mind-altering drugs and promised a Camaro during his time at OSU.

Here is an excerpt from CBSSports.com:

Stevie Clark, who played for the Cowboys during the 2013-14 season, has filed a suit against Ford, and the university, that claims he was coerced into taking mind-altering drugs during his time at OSU. The lawsuit is embedded in full at the bottom of this story.

Clark also alleges his recruitment to Oklahoma State included vows of gifting him a car — specifically, a Camaro — something that never came to be once he got on campus.

The Tulsa World first obtained Clark’s suit, which also alleges, per the World, that “Clark claims that he faced ‘hazing and disrespect’ from teammate Marcus Smart. … When he expressed frustration to Ford, Clark alleges he was put on psychotropic drugs without his consent. He was required to take the medication to continue practicing with the team, according to the complaint.”
