Hoosiers cornerback suspended indefinitely after DWI

Indiana Helmet

It shouldn’t be a significant problem because he was rarely used, but Indiana cornerback Peter St. Fort has been suspended indefinitely after getting hit with a DUI and possession of marijuana over the weekend, coach Kevin Wilson said after practice today.

St. Fort, a junior, was arrested at 4:22 a.m. on Sunday, a police report shows.

Additionally, Wilson identified three other players — running backs Nick Turner and Antonio Banks and defensive tackle Marlandez Harris — who have left the team.

“He came in and said he didn’t want to play,” Wilson said of Turner. “Thought it was a good choice because he hadn’t been practicing hard.

“He’s a nice kid. He’s got good talent. He’s a smart young man. I just don’t know if he wants to play. I kinda thought it was a good choice. Wished him well, had no issues.”

The loses of Turner and Banks further deplete a running back group that was already dealing with the loss of Darius Willis to what is considered a season-ending knee injury.

    good that he is weeding the guys that do not want to put in the work to make this a respectable program again. something tells me he will be able to bring in better kids to replace those who leave. really if you are any good and go to IU shouldn’t you be starting? they will not miss them or their attitudes.

    metalhead, you’re exactly right. I have no deep affection for the former Sooners OC, but an important part of organizational change is identifying and addressing the problems. Getting rid of problem players may ruffle a few feathers, but if the right message is put out by the staff, it’s going to signal to the kids that this program is serious about personal conduct, academics, discipline, and ultimately on-field success.
