Oklahoma guard EJ Ndoma-Ogar opted out of the rest of the 2020 season, with the news coming after the No. 3 Sooners' stunning loss to Kansas State on Saturday, according to a report.

OUInsider said Ndoma-Ogar, a redshirt freshman, is leaving because of COVID-19 fears. Running back Kennedy Brooks and defensive tackle Jalen Redmond previously opted out.

While coach Lincoln Riley hadn't confirmed the guard's departure as of Sunday morning, Ndoma-Ogar no longer appears on the Sooners' online roster.

The 6-foot-3, 341-pound lineman was a four-star prospect in the Class of 2019 and had scholarship offers from more than 30 Division I programs, including Georgia, Alabama, Michigan and his home-state Texas.

He appeared in four games in 2019, preserving his redshirt.

Oklahoma (1-1) is scheduled to play at Iowa State (1-1) next Saturday.
