West Virginia sophomore receiver Marcus Simms was arrested for DUI and driving with a revoked license early Sunday morning, according to the Dominion Post.

Officers had pulled Simms over for a broken taillight and arrested him after he failed sobriety tests.

Marcus Simms is entering his sophomore year with the Mountaineers. He played in nine games as a freshman in 2016, catching six passes for 95 yards and a touchdown.

Simms had best game came in the second-to-last game of the season when the Mountaineers smoked the Iowa State Cyclones 49-19. He had three catches for 76 yards and his touchdown in the second quarter put the Mountaineers in the lead.

In high school, he was a first-team All-State honoree in Maryland. At 6-foot, 190 pounds, Simms had the right size and good speed to compete at the Division I level. He was a three-star recruit coming out of Sherwood High School.

West Virginia University has yet to comment on the incident. Simms is one of the many young and talented wide receivers in Morgantown with limited experience. But expect Simms to be disciplined by Dana Holgorsen.
