Oklahoma football signee Josh Jarboe told an Atlanta television station Thursday that he's still planning on coming to OU despite being charged with two felony gun counts late last week.

"I still have my scholarship, I'm still going to Oklahoma,” Jarboe told JaQuitta Williams of WSB-TV. "If I don't go to Oklahoma, I'm going somewhere.

"This isn't fixing to just stop me.”

Jarboe, 18, was charged in DeKalb County, Ga., with theft by receiving a gun and carrying a weapon within a school safety zone stemming from a March 6 arrest.

"If you know me, (you know) I'm a good person,” Jarboe said. "This is just a speed bump that has slowed me down.

"I'm going to get up out of this and go on doing what I'm supposed to be doing.”

According to the police report, Jarboe and James Davis, 17, drove into the Cedar Grove High School parking lot about 3:30 p.m.

An assistant principal claims he then saw Jarboe grab a silver and black handgun from the back of Davis' car and tuck it into the waistband of his pants.
