Anderson, the Sooners leading rusher, was accused of raping a 23-year-old woman last month. Last week, the news came to light when she filed for an emergency protective order.
From the court filing last week:
“All I remembered from the night was kissing him and vomiting for about 20 minutes. This past weekend, I was talking to a friend about the night and started recalling images and feelings of him forcing his fingers into my vagina and feeling sick, him biting me and me not feeling like I could say anything, and trying to get away from him to put clothes on.
“I remember feeling like I couldn’t get away. He knows where I live and I’m scared for my safety.”
However, according to Anderson’s attorney, his client had proof in the form of text messages that the woman attempted to “pursue a relationship” but that Anderson was not interested.
The running back is expected to play in the 2018 Rose Bowl on Jan. 1 when the No. 2 Sooners face off against the No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs. The winner of the game will advance to the College Football Playoff National Championship Game.
