ISU wide receiver Wallace Franklin has been suspended from the football team indefinitely.

Franklin was listed as a reserve on the Cyclones preseason depth chart but has not practiced this summer due to a suspension which stems from two arrests.

Tom Kroeschell, Iowa State’s associate athletic director, said coach Gene Chizik was unavailable for comment but also mentioned that it was undetermined whether Franklin would return to the team.

“He has been, and remains, suspended from the team,” Kroeschell told The Des Moines Register.

Franklin is still listed as a student at Iowa State.

“He has not practiced,” Kroeschell said.

According to police records, Franklin was charged on March 2 with disorderly conduct and interference with official acts.

An officer came upon a scene in which Franklin and another individual were fighting. Franklin was arrested as a result of that altercation.

On May 4, officers arrived at the scene of a fight involving several individuals.

Wallace was not arrested on that night, but a warrant was later issued for his arrest.

He was again charged with interference with official acts.

Franklin made two catches last year for 5 yards and a touchdown.
