Sooners’ Will Sunderland suspended indefinitely; Charged with burglary

Lincoln Riley announced on late Monday evening that safety Will Sunderland was suspended indefinitely from the Oklahoma football team. No details were released, but Oklahoma County court records show that a warrant for Sunderland’s arrest was issued on June 15th for misdemeanor concealment of stolen property charges. Sunderland has yet to turn himself in.

This will be the 4th arrest of the off-season for the Oklahoma football program to this point as Baker Mayfield, Chris Robison, and Ronnie LaRue have got in trouble with the law prior.

Sunderland was set to take over the spot that Ahmad Thomas left from last season. Khalil Haughton, Chanse Sylvie, and Will Johnson are the other safeties to watch to start at the strong safety position.


Update- June 22nd 9:30 AM:

Will Sunderland Jr has now been charged with felony burglary charges. Brady Vardeman of the Dallas Morning News tweeted out more details:

This development all but secures Sunderland’s fate of making his way back onto the Oklahoma football team. The projected starter has yet to turn himself in to Cleveland County police.
