Oklahoma State fullback pleads guilty to DUI

State briefs

STILLWATER (AP) — Oklahoma State backup fullback Teddy Johnson has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence and obstructing a police officer.

Online court records show Johnson entered guilty pleas Monday in Payne County District Court and had his sentencing deferred for one year on both counts.

Johnson was accused of driving a black Nissan pickup truck while drunk during the early morning hours of April 21 in Stillwater. According to an affidavit, the obstruction charge came about because a 16-year-old boy initially claimed he was driving when Johnson actually had been behind the wheel.

Johnson recorded six tackles and recovered a fumble on special teams duty last season as a redshirt freshman.

Guerrero leaves Oklahoma State to be with mother

STILLWATER — Point guard Cezar Guerrero is leaving Oklahoma State’s basketball program to be closer to his ailing mother.

Coach Travis Ford announced Monday that Guerrero plans to transfer closer to his Huntington Park, Calif., home.

Guerrero said in a statement released by the team that he’s disappointed to leave because he thinks the Cowboys “could be something special this season” but that it’s important for him to be with his mother, Martha.

Guerrero averaged 5.6 points in 32 games last season as a freshman, starting six times.

Most memorably, he hit eight 3-pointers and tied Oklahoma State’s freshman scoring record with 29 points to lead the Cowboys out of an 11-point deficit to beat Texas-San Antonio in November.

He averaged 8.8 points in Oklahoma State’s recent four-game exhibition tour in Spain.

No. 4 Sooners elect team captains

NORMAN — Oklahoma starting quarterback Landry Jones has been elected a team captain for the third straight season.

Coach Bob Stoops said after practice Monday that Jones was one of five players chosen as a captain in a team vote. Gabe Ikard, who is moving from guard to become the starting center, joins Jones as an offensive captain.

Lineman David King was chosen as the captain of the defense, and punter Tress Way will serve as the leader on special teams for a second straight season.

Stoops says fullback Trey Millard received enough votes between offense and special teams that he was selected as the fifth captain.

The fourth-ranked Sooners open their season Sept. 1 at UTEP.
