Ohio man accused of stalking OU soccer player

— NORMAN (AP) — An Ohio man remains jailed on $2 million bond after prosecutors accused him of threatening to kill a University of Oklahoma soccer player.

Naasik Ferdous of Batavia, Ohio, is charged with stalking and conspiring to perform an act of violence. Prosecutors claim that Ferdous admitted driving more than 900 miles from Cincinnati to the Norman campus with the intent of killing OU goalie Kelsey Devonshire.

An affidavit alleges that Ferdous called University of Oklahoma police to tell them that he was on his way to "come after" Devonshire.

Devonshire, who was not harmed, obtained a protection order last week against Ferdous. The affidavit says Ferdous blamed Devonshire for his expulsion from OU.

Court records do not list an attorney for Ferdous. He's due in court Oct. 30.
