K.J. Young dismissed from OU

The Sooners lost another piece of their 2013 class as sources confirm K.J. Young has been dismissed from the program.

The attrition continues at Oklahoma. For the second time this week, it has been confirmed a Class of 2013 member will no longer be a part of the Sooners.

Multiple sources confirmed Sunday afternoon wide receiver K.J. Young has been dismissed from the program because of a violation of team rules.

Young played in 12 games last season and started in three of them with 19 catches for 215 yards and a touchdown.

Originally from Perris (Calif.) Citrus Hill, Young was a three-star recruit coming out of high school. OU came out of nowhere to offer Young six weeks before signing day and snatched him up.

Earlier in the week running back Keith Ford, a former five-star recruit, announced he was transferring from the program.

While OU is loaded at running back, there are a lot of questions regarding OU’s future at wide receiver. With first-year coach Dennis Simmons taking over, he has lost a one piece of the puzzle.

OU has a lot of wide receivers on its roster, but there are so many lingering issues as to whether or not they’re going to be able to produce on the field in 2015.
