One of Oklahoma's top football recruits faces a felony charge. Prentiss Elliot is accused of assaulting a police officer.

He's also charged with resisting arrest. The senior at the Tulsa School for Science and Technology and two others were arrested Tuesday night after a fight during a basketball game against Memorial High School.

Tulsa Police say 19-year-old Elliot hit Officer Josh Martin during a dispute over whether TSST students were allowed to stand as close to the court as Memorial students. Officers also arrested Lester Brown and Morio Lucas.

Brown faces the same felony charge as Elliot, Lucas is charged with inciting a riot.
