Oklahoma linebacker Frank Shannon is facing a year-long suspension following Monday's announcement from President Boren's office.

"The final decision of the internal disciplinary process was suspension of the student for one year," Boren said in a statement. "Federal privacy law and other legal considerations prohibit me from discussing the case further."

"The University is unable to enforce its process at this time. The University has and is taking every legal step possible to move this process forward. The University is currently seeking to enforce its decision so that it may be in compliance with federal law requiring responses by institutions to such matters in a timely manner. With the fall semester beginning August 18, time is of the essence."
