I mean, who says the Big 12 isn’t closing the gap on the SEC?
Per SoonerScoop.com, Oklahoma backup quarterback Kendal Thompson was arrested early Friday for public intoxication and interfering with a police officer (for which he was assessed a 15-yard penalty). Per the Oklahoman, officers responded to a loud party at an apartment complex. Upon arrival, officers found Thompson “lying in the grass on a hill leading up to the complex” and he “allegedly refused to obey orders, spoke in incoherent sentences and kept trying to walk away from the officers.”
Thompson was still in custody as of late Friday morning.
OU has only stated it is aware of the situation, so what (if any) punishment Thompson may face is unknown at this time.
Thompson was competing for OU’s starting quarterback job this spring, but it looked as though he was more likely to end up as Blake Bell‘s backup.
