One of the most talented young pieces of Oregon State’s defensive puzzle won’t see the field at all in 2014, head coach Mike Riley announced Tuesday.

Following up on the speculation that’s been bubbling just below the surface, Riley confirmed that Darrell Songy has been suspended for the entire 2014 season. Riley would only state “violating athletic department rules” when asked about the reason or reasons behind the hefty punishment.

“Life is all about choices and how they can change your life in the blink of an eye,” Riley said. “That’s what’s happened.”

Songy, just a two-star member of OSU’s 2013 recruiting class played in 12 games as a true freshman last season, mainly on special teams, and was one of just three true freshmen to play for the Beavers in 2013. His 12 tackles on special teams were good for second on the team.

He would’ve entered summer camp as the No. 2 outside linebacker behind starter Michael Doctor.

    Straighten up and fly right and cash your megachecks… how hard can that be?

    What level of intelligence is required to get that?

    How can you judge someone if you have no idea what it’s like to live in their shoes? College athletes have to fight temptations everyday to stay in line instead of following their gut or bad-influences.

    There are plenty of college players that do not play in the NFL, you make it seem like a smooth transition. Very few get to experience this “megacheck” you mention. Furthermore, even if they are in the NFL, a “megacheck” doesn’t just automatically appear.
