A former basketball player at John A. Logan College faces 15 gun charges.

ESPN reports Sarion McGee -- who is transferring to Canisius College in Buffalo, New York after spending this past season at Logan -- was arrested recently by Canisius campus police for having two handguns, a shotgun and numerous high-capacity magazines outside the school's indoor athletic complex.

The Milwaukee native faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

Court documents show a campus police officer was checking cars parked illegally in the Canisius athletics lot when he saw a high-capacity .22-caliber magazine in the passenger seat of what was determined to be McGee's car.

Police eventually found more loaded magazines stored in his glove box, and a 12-gauge shotgun in the trunk of the car.

McGee's lawyer told the judge the guns and ammunition were purchased legally in Wisconsin and Illinois.

McGee is awaiting a bail hearing.
