Class of 2016 four-star center Gorjok Gak received his release from Oklahoma State and has re-opened his recruitment, per a short statement on his Twitter.
I have just received my release from Oklahoma State University, and have re-opened up my recruitment.

Gak, who currently attends Victory Rock Prep in Bradenton, Florida, also had offers in hand from UConn, Tulsa, Nebraska and Missouri prior to committing to the Cowboys. Now, the 6-foot-10, 205 pound prospect is back on the open market, and it’s easy to understand why.
Look at it this way. Gak initially committed to Oklahoma State so he could play for coach Travis Ford, who was let go earlier this month after eight underwhelming seasons. Ford has since been replaced with Brad Underwood, whose aggressive and “selfless” style turned Stephen F. Austin into a Southland powerhouse that made three straight NCAA Tournaments.
That said, though Gak did not specifically rule out a return to Stillwater, odds are greater than none that he wants to play for a coach whose philosophy better matches how he plays. Stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates on this story!
