Shawn Oakman, a former Penn State football player that transferred to Baylor, is one of the players that was arrested of sexual assault at Baylore, and brought on this situation.
Waco police arrest former Baylor football player Oakman on sexual assault chargeQuote from: Waco police arrest former Baylor football player Oakman on sexual assault chargeThe 6-foot-8, 287-pound defensive end went to high school in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, and started his college career at Penn State University, where he also found himself in trouble.
Bill O’Brien, the current Houston Texans coach, was Penn State’s new coach at the time after taking over for Joe Paterno. O’Brien kicked Oakman off the team after Oakman, who said he ran out of points on his university meal card, tried to steal a sandwich and fruit juice from a campus store.
The cashier asked if he was going to pay for the sandwich and kept his meal card, according to published reports. Oakman grabbed the cashier’s wrist and took the card from her hand. O’Brien dismissed Oakman from the team the next day.
...oddly enough, there was another Penn State lineman, before Oakman, who was kicked off the Penn State football team and transferred to Baylor. That player was kicked off the team for a sexual assault charge. His name escapes me right now.
Interesting place to commit to right now. Then again he pretty much is guaranteed a starting job as a freshman

Definitely a step up from Boston College (GT got to the NIT quarterfinals last year), although they did lose their top 4 leading scorers from last year. New coach...they're probably looking at a down year.
