Oklahoma wide receiver Jalen Saunders was arrested Saturday night for marijuana possession, according to reports. SoonerScoop.com relayed that Saunders' name appeared on the Cleveland County Sheriff's Inmate Information System with the possession charge.
Saunders, a transfer from Fresno State, has emerged as an elite pass-catching threat for the Sooners. He finished the season on Saturday afternoon with a seven-catch, 108-yard performance in Oklahoma's win over TCU. He's tallied more than 100 yards receiving and a touchdown in each of the past three games.
Saunders missed the first month of the season after waiting for the NCAA to declare him eligible under their transfer rules. Despite playing in only eight of 12 games, he's third on the team in receiving behind Kenny Stills and Justin Brown.
Oklahoma's win over TCU on Saturday capped a 10-2 season. The Sooners are likely headed to the BCS with a potential date in the Sugar Bowl. But Landry Jones and the offense could be down a receiver if Saunders was indeed arrested for possession.
