Stoops suspends four players indefinitely

NORMAN — Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops announced late Wednesday night that four players had been “suspended indefinitely for violation of team rules.”

The players are: wide receivers Jaz Reynolds, Trey Franks, Kameel Jackson and defensive back Quentin Hayes. OU officials did not say why the players have been suspended.

Reynolds, a junior, is the player who was expected to have the most impact this season. He was OU’s third-leading receiver in 2011 with 41 receptions, 715 receiving yards and five touchdowns.

Franks, also a junior, has started four games over the previous two seasons and has logged 51 catches for 459 yards over the past two seasons.

Reynolds and Franks have served prior suspensions. Reynolds was held out of three games during the 2010 season after the Orange, Texas, native tweeted insensitive remarks about a gunman at the University of Texas campus.

Franks was held out of two games last season due to an unspecified violation.

As for Jackson, he took to Twitter on Sunday to announce he was transferring to Texas A&M at the end of the semester. It is currently finals week for OU students. Several outlets reported the Texas A&M coaching staff had not offered Jackson a scholarship. Jackson started two games last season, including the victory over Iowa in the Insight Bowl.

Hayes, a redshirt sophomore, played sparingly last season.
