Oregon DT Torrodney Prevot suspended indefinitely

|

The Oregon Ducks are looking to have another successful season in 2016 as they should compete in the PAC-12 this year. They will be without a player that could make an impact along the defensive line as Torrodney Prevot has been suspended.

The Ducks decided to suspend Prevot after a report from the Daily Emerald, a college newspaper, that he had sexually assaulted a former athlete at the school earlier this year. The suspension is for an indefinite amount of time and it is likely that he will miss the season opener next weekend.

“Torrodney Prevot has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of University and Department of Athletics codes of conduct. At the conclusion of the University process, his status as a student-athlete will be evaluated further,” head coach Mark Helfrich said in a statement.

Prevot played in all 13 games and started the last five in 2015. He was the team’s eighth-leading tackler with 48 tackles, 7.5 for loss, and 2.5 sacks.

The Ducks open the 2016 season on Sept. 3 against UC Davis.
