Ray Willis, a freshman guard on the OU basketball team, was arrested early Saturday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Willis, a first-year player from Atlanta, Ga., did not suit up for Saturday’s game against Colorado, but was on the bench in street clothes.


After the game, a 77-72 OU win, Oklahoma coach Jeff Capel said Willis had been "suspended indefinitely,” offering no further details.

According to the Tulsa World, Norman police Lt. Blake Green said Willis was taken into custody at 3:16 a.m. Saturday at the intersection of Asp and Lindsey on campus. He was taken to the Cleveland County Detention Center, and later released after bond was posted.

Willis, averaging 3.8 points and 1.6 rebounds in 14 games this season, had not played the previous three contests before his arrest.

He’s played just three minutes in the Sooners’ nine Big 12 games.

Willis was a national Top 100 recruit after averaging 27.5 points and seven rebounds at Westlake High in Atlanta.
