OXFORD – Jarvis Summers, a rising senior on the Ole Miss basketball team, was arrested in early June for driving while his license was suspended and at a high rate of speed on a campus street, according to University Police.

Summers was driving more than 48 miles an hour on Manning Way, a winding street that runs between the football indoor practice facility and the track. The posted speed limit is 10 miles an hour.

Summers was arrested by University Police after the officer realized that Summers did not have a valid driver’s license.

“We were aware of the situation when it happened, and Jarvis has taken care of his responsibilities,” Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said in a statement.

Summers was often called the team’s best player by Kennedy last season.

He averaged 17.3 points and was named all-SEC second team by the coaches, honorable mention by the Associated Press.
