Tennessee Volunteers Backup QB Doak Raulston Arrested for DUI

John WhiteCorrespondent IIINovember 21, 2010

Saturday morning, Raulston was arrested by the Knox County Sheriff's Department for driving while impaired.

He later posted a $1,000 bond and was released. He is scheduled to appear in Knox County General Sessions Court on Monday.

Following Derek Dooley from Louisiana Tech, Doak Raulston had aspirations to play for the Vols as a walk-on, and was recruited heavily by Dooley. Listed on the roster as backup QB, it's not specified whether or not he's fourth or fifth behind Simms, and/or Nash.

Regardless, Dooley has been quick to discipline rule-breaking players this season, attempting to set an example and send a message to current and future Vols. With the limited number of scholarships available, I would not be surprised to see Dooley dismiss Raulston should evidence prove detrimental for the Texas 20-year-old.

As a private school QB, Raulston threw over 3,026 yards and rushed for 840 more his senior year. He was a redshirt freshman while at Louisiana Tech.

No comment has been made by the university or coach Dooley at this time.
