Oklahoma Sooners Players Suspended

The Oklahoma Sooners were looking at a tough task of replacing all-time NCAA receptions leader Ryan Broyles in 2012.

That task just got a lot harder with the news out of Norman, Wednesday evening.

Three wide receivers, juniors Trey Franks and Jaz Reynolds, and sophomore Kameel Jackson, along with sophomore defensive back Quentin Hayes, have been suspended indefinitely for violations of team rules. It was not reported what the specific violations were.

Franks was the Sooners’ leading kickoff returner in 2011, averaging 23.9 yards per return. He also caught 22 passes for 196 yards.

Franks was suspended for two games last season for a separate unspecified violation of team rules.

Reynolds was the Sooners’ third-leading receiver last year, catching 41 passes for 715 yards and five touchdowns. Reynolds was considered to be the No. 2 receiver in 2012 for the Sooners behind junior Kenny Stills.

This is Reynolds’ second indefinite suspension. The other came in 2010, after Reynolds posted insensitive comments on Twitter related to the gunman that threatened the University of Texas campus the week before the Red River Rivalry.

Jackson, who earlier this week announced he intended to transfer to Texas A&M appears to be staying put for the time being. Jackson, who will be a sophomore in the fall, figured to be a key factor in OU’s effort to replace Broyles.

There were reports of Jackson possibly receiving a suspension in 2012 for missing too many classes and spring practices, so it’s possible that situation is the case for the rest of the players.

Hayes will be a sophomore in the fall and was going to be a factor in the defensive backfield rotation.

This is a big blow to the Sooners’ depth at wide receiver, and also experience. OU is now down to just three eligible receivers, not including the four that will join the team for the start of the 2012 season. It is now vital those players come in ready to play if the Sooners are going to have a fighting chance in the Big 12 this season.
