Early Sunday morning Wyoming junior guard A.J. Banks, 20, was arrested on charges of driving under the influence as a youthful offender and speeding, according to Brandon Foster of the Casper Star-Tribune.

Per the report, Banks was released on bond Tuesday.

Banks is in his first season as a member of the Wyoming program, after spending his first two years at Pratt Community College in Kansas. The 6-foot-2 Las Vegas native averaged 11.2 points and 3.3 assists per game at Pratt last season.

Banks and fellow junior college transfer Jake Hendricks, who set the career three-pointers record at the College of Southern Idaho, will add depth to a Wyoming perimeter rotation led by senior guard Justin James.
