Just a week ago it seemed like the Oklahoma Sooners would have one of the best receiving corps in the country. Landry Jones had four experienced receivers at his disposal in Kenny Stills, Jaz Reynolds, Trey Franks and Kameel Jackson. 

Today it appears that Stills will be the only one of these four that will begin the season in an Oklahoma uniform. According to OUInsider.com (via NewsOK.com), Bob Stoops has announced the suspension of Reynolds, Franks, and Jackson, as well as defensive back Quentin Hayes, for violating team rules. 

Reynolds and Franks are repeat offenders, and will serve significant suspensions. Stoops has decided that Reynolds will miss seven games and Franks will miss the entire 2012 season. Both have been suspended for violating team rules before. 

The suspension of Jackson is interesting, considering the fact that he announced that he would be transferring to Texas A&M just a few days ago. 

The Sooners had a lot of trouble when senior superstar went down with an injury last season. I'm curious to see how Landry Jones and Kenny Stills can perform without three of their top pass-catchers.

Though Oklahoma has several promising incoming players with a lot of potential, especially freshman Trey Metoyer, depth at receiver has become Bob Stoops' biggest issue overnight.
