Sooners Dismiss Trio

Sooners pull scholarships of Reynolds, Franks and Hayes: The OU athletic department pulled the scholarships of three suspended OU football players, coach Bob Stoops said Wednesday.

Junior wide receivers Jaz Reynolds and Trey Franks, as well as sophomore defensive back Quentin Hayes, have been removed from scholarship, Stoops said at the Sooner Caravan stop in Tulsa.

Sophomore wide receiver Kameel Jackson is currently on a summer scholarship but will have to earn one back in the fall.

Reynolds, Franks, Jackson and Hayes were suspended for violating undisclosed team rules May 9.

“There isn’t any clamping down. I’ve always clamped down,” Stoops said at the caravan stop. “Overall, it’s fair to say over 13 or 14 years that our track record has been pretty similar. We stick with what’s proper, what’s appropriate. Our team policies and university policies, we don’t waver. You either abide by them or you don’t.” (The Oklahoma Daily)
