The University of Oklahoma says President David Boren will make an important announcement about OU's future Wednesday afternoon.

In a news release Wednesday morning, the university said the announcement will take place at 2 p.m. at Reynolds Performing Arts Center.

Reports that Boren would resign on Wednesday began circulating on social media Tuesday night. A university spokesman told News On 6 Tuesday evening those reports were "inaccurate."
