5-star RB Joe Mixon not part of Sooners program

On Wednesday the University of Oklahoma athletic department announced that 5-star running back Joe Mixon will not be reporting for team activitiesafter an alleged altercation, effectively being suspended before his career ever got started.

Oklahoma came in to 2014 losing its top two running backs last season, who combined for 1,500 yards. Having a 5-star waiting in the wings was clearly a way to help get some of that production back.
