Four Oklahoma Sooner Football Players Suspended Indefinitely
University of Oklahoma head football coach Bob Stoops announced on Wednesday night through the team’s website that Quentin Hayes, Trey Franks, Kameel Jackson and Jaz Reynolds have been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules.
Reynolds, Franks and Jackson are all wide receivers while Hayes served as a reserve safety.
Franks, Reynolds and Jackson made a combined 10 starts last season for the Sooners.
Reynolds was OU’s third-leading receiver last season with 41 catches for 715 yards and five touchdowns. He became quarterback Landry Jones favorite target after fellow wide-out Ryan Broyles went down with a season-ending knee injury. He snagged 13 passes for 256 yards in 2009.
Franks caught 22 passes for 196 yards in 2011 and was also used on end-arounds and reverses, rushing for 100 yards on seven carries. In 2010, he caught 29 passes for 263 yards and a touchdown.
Jackson caught 12 passes for 165 yards as a true freshman last season.
Hayes played on special teams in eight games in 2011.
This isn’t the first time Reynolds has been in trouble with Stoops as he was suspended twice in 2010, including once after he made insensitive comments on Twitter following a campus shooting at the University of Texas.
Reynolds tweeted, “Hey everyone in Austin, tx…….kill yourself #evillaugh”, and soon after posted, “Everyone in austin, tx disregard that last tweet….y’all will mess around n do it lmao.”
Franks has also found himself in Stoops dog-house before. After starting the first two games for Oklahoma last season he was suspended two games for what Stoops labeled multiple violations of team rules. He ended the season with 22 catches for 196 yards.
Should Reynolds, Franks and Jackson all be available for OU’s opener Sept. 1 at UTEP, Kenny Stills would be the only receiver on the Sooner roster with a career reception.
