Oregon State linebacker Darrell Songy has been dismissed from the program after missing all of last season due to a suspension. The Corvallis Gazette-Times reported Songy’s dismissal.
Per Gina Mizell of The Oregonian, Songy was suspended last year for failing three drug tests prior to the 2014 season, and his dismissal is a result of him not meeting “additional behavioral requirements” expected of him. This is a blow for both Songy and the team, as he was expected to compete for a starting job on the team this year.
A former three-star recruit from Austin, Texas, Songy is now likely headed to junior college for at least a year. As a true freshman in 2013, he played primarily on special teams and posted 12 tackles.
Campus Sports will update Songy’s situation as more information becomes available.
Oregon State opens the 2015 season, its first under former Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen, at home against the Big Sky’s Weber State Wildcats on September 4.
