As an early enrollee, Marquis Anderson was able to get a headstart on his collegiate football career by taking to the field and participating in Oklahoma’s spring practice last month.
Off the field, however, the touted defensive tackle’s transition from high school to college has hit a little bump in the road.
According to multiple media outlets, Anderson was arrested Saturday afternoon and charged with petty larceny. Tulsa World reports that Anderson was observed by Sooner Mall security allegedly taking clothes from a Dillard’s department store in the Norman mall.
Anderson was released at the scene of the alleged theft after signing a citation and will have a court appearance scheduled for a later date.
Rivals.com rated Anderson as the No. 12 defensive tackle in the country for the 2011 recruiting class.
