Female student accuses Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon of breaking her face with one punch

Joe MixonA female student at Oklahoma is accusing incoming freshman running back Joe Mixon of breaking her face in four places with one punch during an incident at a restaurant early Friday morning, according to a report.

No arrests have been made in the situation and police are only investigating the claims of the 20-year-old woman, The Oklahoman reports.

The newspaper spoke with the alleged victim, who said Mixon was “harassing” her and some of her friends at a cafe before the incident.

“He punched me one time. He broke my face in four places … my nose, my sinuses … they’re broken,” the alleged victim told The Oklahoman.

The woman is speaking out despite fear of backlash from the school’s football fans, saying she wants him to go to jail.

“That’s what he deserves,” she said. “I don’t care if he’s the star running back or not.”

Mixon was a highly-touted recruit out of Northern California. He committed to the Sooners in January after also considering UCLA, USC, Cal and Wisconsin.

Recruits Adoree’ Jackson, Joe Mixon speak positively about Steve Sarkisian

Steve SarkisianSteve Sarkisian may not have impressed USC fans and observers as a hire, but many top recruits took notice of the move.

Adoree Jackson of Serra High School in Gardena, Calif. (same school Marqise Lee and Robert Woods attended), who is a 5-star recruit and top-10 player in the country in Rivals’ rankings, tweeted some big things about Sark:

5-star running back Joe Mixon from Oakley, Calif., tweeted that Sark’s hire brought USC “back in the picture” for him:

Mixon also had an in-home visit from UCLA’s coaching staff on Monday night. 247 Recruiting says he is strongly considering Oklahoma, Wisconsin and Cal. He also supposedly was warm on Washington, which would explain his interest in USC.

Jackson received offers from multiple major schools, and Rivals has his list narrowed to about a dozen programs, including USC, UCLA, Oregon, Michigan, Tennessee, Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, among others.

In an interview with WeAreSC’s Blair Angulo, Jackson elaborated on why the Sarkisian hire would be good for USC’s program:
