Oklahoma State suspended freshman guard Marcus Watson over the weekend after a female student was granted an order of protection against him by the Payne County District Court.

“OSU is aware of the request for protective order and takes such matters seriously,” OSU said in a statement. “Pending further investigation, the student-athlete currently is being withheld from team activities.”

According to GoPokes.com, the order was served last Monday and Watson has a court date scheduled for Nov. 7th. Oklahoma State opens the season on Nov. 6th against Oral Roberts.

Watson is a four-star prospect from Georgia that ranks in the top 50 in the Class of 2019. He is the sixth player to be suspended or dismissed since head coach Mike Boynton took over in 2017.
