4-star Oklahoma State RB Devon Thomas charged with robbery, shooting to kill

Devon Thomas enrolled early in Stillwater as a freshman.

Oklahoma State freshman running back Devon Thomas was arrested on Wednesday for armed robbery and shooting with the intent to kill, according to the Tulsa World. Thomas was one of four suspects arrested in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

The victim reported the suspects stole his marijuana, money, shoes and clothing and instructed him to leave because they were going to "bust a cap."

As the victim was leaving in his vehicle, one of the robbers fired at least one round into the vehicle, entering the rear windshield and nicking the driver's head rest, according to Thomas' arrest report. The report indicates the bullet narrowly missed the driver.

According to the paper, Thomas is being held on $125,000 bond. This is his second arrest since March, when he failed to appear in court for a traffic warrant. He was also suspended for four games during his junior year of high school for an unspecified reason, though his coach said those "situations" were behind him by his senior year.

Rated a four-star recruit and ranked the 14th-best running back in the country and the sixth-best player in Oklahoma by the 247 Sports Composite, Thomas originally committed to Oklahoma during his junior year. However, a month later, he flipped his commitment to Oklahoma State. He enrolled early with the Cowboys, who already lose a ton of players next year and open the season with Florida State.
