Tulsa running back TK Wilkerson scored four touchdowns this season, including the game-winner against East Carolina.

University of Tulsa running back TK Wilkerson was arrested Friday morning on a complaint of driving under the influence.

Wilkerson, 21, was arrested at 5:34 a.m. on New Year's Day and booked into the Tulsa County Jail. He was released on an $1,100 bond several hours later, according to jail records.​

A third-year sophomore from Skiatook, Wilkerson played in seven games for the Hurricane this season with three starts, totaling 317 yards and four touchdowns. He scored the game-winning touchdown against East Carolina in October, days after his daughter was born.

Wilkerson was injured in the Navy game last month and didn't appear in the final two games. He traveled with the team to the Thursday's Armed Forces Bowl but didn't play.
