NORMAN — Oklahoma football signee Josh Jarboe was arrested Thursday, accused of receiving stolen property and having a weapon on school property — both felonies — according to online records of the DeKalb County (Ga.) Jail.

Jarboe, 18, was booked into the county jail about 6 p.m. along with James Davis, 17, who was arrested on similar complaints.

The students were arrested by DeKalb school system police officers, the jail records show.

The DeKalb school system hasn't released any information about the arrests. A school spokesman said the police report, which will reveal more details about the arrests, is not yet finished.

"Obviously, I became aware of it yesterday evening,” OU coach Bob Stoops said Friday. "It's just premature for me to have anything to say. We haven't had time to find out all the details, so it wouldn't be appropriate until I knew exactly all the details and talked to the people involved over in that area.”

Jarboe, out of Cedar Grove High School in Ellenwood, Ga., was one of the top prospects signed to the 2008 Sooner class in February.

Jarboe, who chose OU over Florida and Georgia, was rated the No. 10-ranked wide receiver in the nation by the recruiting Web site

Jarboe could also face expulsion, according to DeKalb schools' conduct policy.
