Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton announced Wednesday that redshirt sophomore guard Michael Weathers and freshmen forwards Maurice Calloo and Kentrevious Jones were no longer with the program, citing a violation of team rules.

“We have a standard of behavior that we expect from everyone in our program and we’re going to move forward with the people who want to abide by those standards,” Boynton said. “I wish the others well as they move on.”

This is the second time Boynton has dismissed players from the program. Davon Dillard and Zach Dawson were removed for violating team rules last season.

Weathers, a Miami (Ohio) transfer, played in 16 games while averaging 20.4 minutes off the bench. He averaged 9.2 points per contest but was turnover prone, with 47 those games. He became the sixth man after being reinstated following a September arrest for reportedly stealing a woman’s wallet at J.R. Murphy’s, a Stillwater bar.

Calloo was emerging as a promising stretch forward, one who Boynton had praised in recent weeks as growing up.

Jones had missed nine of the previous 10 games because of two different suspensions while his game developed. After missing Monday’s game against Baylor, Boynton said his status with the program was up in the air.

The Cowboys have nine available players on the roster now, including two walk-ons, Trey Reeves and Luke Major. Adding Mike Cunningham’s departure last week, OSU’s roster has lost four players, all on scholarship, who were on the roster for the opening game.

The Cowboys (8-9 overall, 2-3 Big 12) are back in action Saturday when they travel to Iowa State to face the Cyclones at 5 p.m.
