Frank Shannon to remain enrolled as a student and participate in OU football activities. OU president David Boren released a statement Monday afternoon detailing what is happening with Shannon.
OU suspended Shannon on June 18 after a Title IX investigation into an alleged sexual assault. Shannon went to district court June 24 and received a stay, allowing him to remain enrolled as a student and to continue working out with the team.
It’s clear he still has the respect of his peers, especially his fellow linebackers. All they can do is support their friend.
Part of that comes from the support Shannon has given to them over the years. Never afraid of competition, Shannon has been more of a friend and mentor to the younger linebackers instead of somebody afraid to let the new guys in.
“Frank was like my mentor coming in as a freshman,” sophomore linebacker Jordan Evans said. “Frank is a different kind of person. The (Texas) Tech game when he was hurt, the trainers were telling me he was in the doctor’s office screaming for me and hoopin’ and hollerin’ for me.” (More at SoonersIllustrated)
