The Waco Tribune is reporting that Baylor defensive back Eric Ogor has been suspended from the team for the remainder of the 2016 season.
What led to his suspension is unclear as the official reason is for the dreaded “violation of team rules”, but according to SicEmSports, it is not related to sexual assault or any Title IX issue.
#Baylor reserve LB Eric Ogor suspended for a violation of team rules. Nothing to do with Title IX violation. Has played sparingly this far.

Ogor has been in the rotation at the nickel position as Baylor has transitioned to a 3-4 defense. He saw most of his action in the first two games after starting nickelback Travon Blanchard underwent surgery just before the season. Blanchard returned to the lineup in week three against Rice, and Ogor hasn’t seen much of the field since.
A redshirt freshman, Ogor sat out last season after joining the Bears as a two-star recruit in 2015 out of Richmond, TX.
Hopefully, with three years of eligibility still in front of him, the former high school two-time All-State linebacker can use his time away from the team to focus on the things he needs to do to get his football career back on track.
