Temple University linebacker Praise Martin-Oguike was charged with rape Tuesday, and is out on bail. A university spokesman told WPTI-TV in Philadelphia that Martin-Oguike, 18, has been suspended from the team amid the sexual assault charges. The 6'1, 220-pounder allegedly assaulted a 21-year-old female student on May 26, according to police. The student claims she was in Martin-Oguike's dorm room, when he tried to kiss her and was told no. She then said that she tried to leave, but was grabbed by the throat, dragged into his bedroom and raped and assaulted. After the incident, the victim said she was sent a text message a few hours later, asking her, "Are you gonna press charges?"
