Just hours after the Western Kentucky University Football Spring Game, WKU redshirt sophomore quarterback Steven Duncan was arrested. According to records at the Warren County Regional Jail, Duncan, 19, was booked at 2:43 a.m. central on April 22.

Duncan was charged with DUI, failure to produce his insurance card and failure to use his headlights.

WKU released the following statement on Sunday: “We are aware of the situation and currently gathering more information. We take this matter very seriously as a football program.”

A court date has not yet been set.

Duncan had split reps with redshirt senior Drew Eckles during Saturday’s Spring Game.

According to WKU’s website, Duncan is a 6-4, 225 pound Charleston, South Carolina Native. He has played in one game for WKU football. He completed 2-of-2 pass attempts in his redshirt freshman season. He was competing for the team’s starting spot this spring. He and the red team beat the white team in the scrimmage 24 to 14. on Saturday, which concluded the spring season for the Hilltoppers.

Eckels, Duncan and redshirt freshman quarterback Davis Shanley combined to rush for nearly 100 yards on designed runs and scrambles in the annual Red-White scrimmage.

At Ashley Ridge High School as a senior, Duncan threw for over 3,000 yards and connected on 26 touchdown passes and was named to the All-Lowcountry second team. In 2014, the QB recorded 2,589 passing yards and 29 touchdowns. Duncan was ranked as a two-star prospect by Scout.com, Rivals.com and ESPN.com. Duncan was the first player from his high school to sign a scholarship to play at the FBS level.
