Boy, it has not been a good 24 hours for college football players, has it? Nor has it been rainbows and puppies for Oklahoma State recently.
The Cowboys have already dealt with — and by dealt with, I mean dismissed — former running back Herschel Sims after he allegedly stole $700 from a teammate’s checking account. Now, Mike Gundy has another player in trouble, though the crime likely won’t result in any sort of dismissal or offseason suspension.
The Oklahoman reports that sophomore safety Isaac Maselera was charged Thursday with a misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. “The alleged offense occurred Monday,” the paper reads, “when campus police reported finding a metal grinder used for marijuana in Maselera’s dorm room, according to court documents.”
Maselera must appear in court by July 13 or he faces potentially one year in jail.
The defensive back played in nine games as a true freshman last season, primarily on special teams.
