STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Authorities expect a former Oklahoma State University basketball player accused of forgery to surrender this week.

Payne County prosecutors charged Glendon D. Alexander with forgery April 9. Alexander, 23, is accused of trying to cash a check made payable to Ivan McFarlin, another OSU player.

According to the felony charge, McFarlin's signature was forged. The charge carries a prison term of as much as seven years.

Alexander's lawyers last week said the former player would surrender within 10 days from the day the charge was filed, Assistant District Attorney Charles Rogers said.

Alexander's home address is listed on court documents as Carrollton, Texas, a Dallas suburb.

He played during the Cowboys' Elite Eight run in the 1999-2000 season. He had transferred from the University of Arkansas.
