Joe Mixon might not be part of Oklahoma's football team for now, but Mixon was at Gaylord Family—Oklahoma Memorial Stadium on Thursday.
After the Sooners finished up an open practice and interaction with students, Mixon was seen walking off the field with Sooners Director of High School Relations Rajeeb Hossain.
Mixon, a five-star running back from Oakley, Calif., was suspended for a year on Monday, shortly after pleading not guilty to a misdemeanor in Cleveland County District Court.
Mixon, who was charged with one count of “act resulting in gross injury,” is scheduled to be back in court Sept. 23.
He has reportedly been attending class this week, likely signaling he intends to stay in school in Norman.
