Oklahoma defensive back Cortez Johnson pleaded guilty to misdemeanor possession of marijuana, taking responsibility for the pot found in wide receiver Jalen Saunders' car during an arrest in December.
Johnson received a six-month deferred sentence and three months of probation. He was the one driving Saunders' car when they were stopped and arrested on Dec. 2 of last year. Johnson has yet to play a down for Oklahoma, as he transferred to Norman from Arizona following the 2011 season. In that season with the Wildcats, he appeared in eight games, making two starts, and had 16 tackles.
Saunders has been a mainstay in the Oklahoma offense over the last two years -- he finished the 2012 season with 829 yards on 62 receptions, and in 2011, he broke, the 1,000-yard receiving barrier. He's caught 18 touchdown passes for the Sooners over the last three years. He has 142 receptions in his Oklahoma career.
