There is some good news for the Oklahoma Sooners football program.
According to a report from Sooner Scoop, starting cornerback Jordan Thomas will not be charged with public intoxication, interference with official process or assault and battery stemming from an incident in June.
As a result, any discipline for Thomas will be handled internally and he will not be suspended for the season-opener.
Thomas’ availability for the Sooners is great news because it provides an obvious boost to the defensive backfield. It will also help with Oklahoma going up against a Heisman Trophy candidate in Houston quarterback Greg Ward Jr.
Last season, Thomas recorded five interceptions, four pass breakups and nine passes defensed.
The Sooners meet the Houston Cougars to kickoff their 2016 season on the road at NRG Stadium, home of the NFL’s Houston Texans.
