Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon will skip his junior and senior seasons in college and head straight to the NFL draft. According to ESPN and The Oklahoman, Mixon told his Sooners teammates that he planned to go to the draft this afternoon.
Mixon played two seasons for the Sooners and is eligible because he redshirted the 2014 season. He was suspended for the duration of that year after he was charged with punching a woman and leaving her unconscious. Two weeks before Oklahoma’s Sugar Bowl win over Auburn, Mixon’s lawyers finally released video of him socking Amelia Molitor unconscious in a sandwich shop.
