The January 1 incident is Weathers' second incident within a few months. According to The Tulsa World, "Weathers was arrested outside a Stillwater bar on Sept. 9 after allegedly stealing a woman's wallet and using a debit card in it to pay for drinks at the bar. He was suspended from team activities immediately, but (OSU Head Coach Mike) Boynton reinstated him after his felony charge was reduced to a misdemeanor."
Weathers transferred to Oklahoma State after his freshman season at Miami (OH). Weathers was named Mid-American Conference Freshman of the Year for the 2016-17 season. In 32 games (30 starts) for the RedHawks, Weathers averaged 16.7 points per game, 4.8 assists, 1.9 steals, and 1.4 blocks per game his freshman season.
He sat out the 2017-'18 season due to NCAA transfer rules. Before being dismissed from OSU, Weathers played 16 games (0 starts) for Oklahoma State and averaged 9.2 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.1 steals per game.
After OSU dismissed Weathers, Weathers committed to Nicholls State but decommitted Nicholls State on February 19.
