CAMPUS CORNER — The perception is and was that Sooners receiver signee Courtney Gardner has an uphill climb to become eligible to enroll and play at OU. This will not help matters.

The story:

By TRAVIS HANEY

NORMAN – Oklahoma football signee Courtney Gardner was arrested this past weekend on a misdemeanor obstruction charge in his hometown of Reno, Nev., according to the city’s newspaper.

A spokesman for the Washoe County Sherriff’s Office told the Reno Gazette-Journal that Gardner, a late addition to the 2012 class for the Sooners, was arrested about 1 a.m. Sunday after the driver of the car in which Gardner was a passenger was pulled over on suspicion of DUI.

The police spokesman said Gardner “became belligerent” as the driver was being questioned. Armando Avina also said the car had five occupants, and the responding officer noted an immediate smell of alcohol and marijuana.

Someone in the car at one point said to the officer, “Don’t you know who we are? We’re Division I athletes.”

As Gardner continued to become more vocal with the officer, backup units were called.

The newspaper reported Gardner was also arrested in November 2009, for possessing alcohol as a minor.

Gardner, 6 foot 3 and 215 pounds, is still a student at Sierra Community College in Rocklin, Calif., where he needs to pass a handful of classes this semester to be academically eligible to enroll at OU in the summer.

Sooners coach Bob Stoops does not typically comment on arrests of current or future players.

Gardner, whose family was forced to move west after Hurricane Katrina destroyed its home in Louisiana, is one of a half-dozen junior college players that OU signed in the class.

Exactly what I was thinking. It will be shocking if he amounts to anything between his academics and apparent attitude.

Don't worry.  Stoops will give him a stern talking-to.

If that doesn't work then he won't let Gardner kick any field goals or play quarterback.  Got to get the player's attention somehow.

Amazing how that's happening more and more.  That Bobby Petrino sure is lucky that way.

Didn't you get the memo? He's a Division I athlete. I'm sure what really happened is that the officers apologized to young Gardner and his Division I friends, and sent them on their way.  :police:
