Baylor football coach Matt Rhule announced Wednesday he and the University suspended four players from the team for various disciplinary reasons. Though Rhule wouldn't comment on the reasons behind what he termed "separating the four from the program," the speculation is that three of the suspensions come from an alleged sexual assault incident involving players and equestrian team members.
The four suspended players are junior linebacker Eric Ogor, redshirt freshman safeties Tre’von Lewis and John Arthur and redshirt freshman defensive end Justin Harris. Rhule did say he suspended at least one player based on his discretion; the other suspensions originated with the University due to player conduct. Those three are thought to be the alleged perpetrators of the sexual offenses.
Roughly a month ago, McClennan County officials admitted that they are actively investigating an incident between football players and female members of the equestrian team. The assaults allegedly occurred at the University Parks Apartment complex after the Texas Tech game, though other details are very sketchy.
