Reynolds made lots of mistakes throughout his OU career, but Stoops continued to give him extra chances, and the wide receiver ended up making the most of his final opportunity.
During his true freshman season, he tweeted insensitive comments about a gunman on the University of Texas campus and redshirted that year. He served a one-game suspension for violating team rules as a sophomore in 2011, and was removed from scholarship in May 2012 when he violated team rules and was suspended indefinitely. He was reinstated, but didn’t play at all as a junior. His senior year, he caught 14 passes for 216 yards and a touchdown and was signed by the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted free agent.
Hayes was suspended along with Reynolds in May 2012 for violating unspecified team rules. He sat out the entire 2012 season, but returned as a junior and started all 13 of the Sooners’ games at strong safety last season, recording 75 tackles and two interceptions. He enters his senior year as a veteran, seasoned leader in a pretty inexperienced secondary.
