OU President David Boren speaks with his wife, Molly Shi, and attendees of the "Salute to Stoops" event April 13.

OU President David Boren is in "good spirits" after suffering a minor stroke while giving a speech before the OU football spring game April 14. 

OU press secretary Matt Epting said in a statement that Boren underwent several tests and is "alert and is communicating with family and his excellent team of medical professionals at OU Medical Center." 

Boren and his wife, Molly Shi, "deeply appreciate the outpouring of love and support they have received" and no further updates are available at this time, Epting said in the statement.

Boren was taken away on a stretcher earlier in the day after giving a speech at the statue dedication ceremony for former OU football coach Bob Stoops.
