Man Who Threatened OU Student-Athletes Sentenced to Prison

An Ohio man who threatened the lives of at least two former University of Oklahoma student-athletes has been sentenced to five years in state prison and a year in Cleveland County jail.

Naasik Ferdous, who briefly attended OU before he was expelled in January 2011 after he was accused of stalking female athletes and lying on his application, has been jailed in Norman since his arrest in the fall.

In October, Ferdous, 22, was arrested by OU Police Department detectives after he drove to Norman with the intent of killing Kelsey Devonshire, who was the women's soccer team goalie at the time.

Ferdous was sentenced Monday by a judge in Cleveland County. He had pleaded no contest in May.

Court records show Ferdous called OU police Oct. 16 and told them he was driving from the Overland Park, Kan., area, with purpose of killing Devonshire, whom he blamed for his expulsion from OU. The previous day, he had taken his mother's car and credit cards and driven to Kansas from his home in Ohio. (The Oklahoman)
