OU confirms suspension of two athletes 

McGowan, a former 4-star recruit who rushed for 370 yards and three touchdowns last season as a true freshman, was removed from the Sooners’ spring game roster last week along with former 5-star wide receiver Trejan Bridges, who was also implicated by Norman police during the April 15 incident.

Norman Police told SI Sooners on Wednesday that no arrests have been made and there were no new developments yet into the investigation that included alleged theft of guns and an alleged pistol-whipping. 

Coach Lincoln Riley said after the Red/White Game on Saturday that he had no further updates on their status but intended to let the legal process play out.

McGowan was a 4-star prospect at Poteet High School, a top-200 player by ESPN, 247 Sports and Rivals, which ranked him as the No. 13 running back prospect in the nation. The 5-11, 205-pound McGowan chose OU over offers from Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Texas and others.
