Florida's Jalen Tabor cited for pot in May
Auburn’s Nick Marshall isn’t the only marquee SEC player who was caught with an illegal substance this summer.
According to 247sports, Jalen Tabor, a five-star prospect and early enrollee at Florida, was stopped by Gainesville police near the University House apartment complex on May 27 and cited for marijuana possession of less than 20 grams. The following week, Tabor entered a deferred prosecution agreement for the misdemeanor charge.
According to the Gainesville Police Department’s incident report, Tabor was a passenger in a car stopped at 1:22 a.m. after an officer smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle.
Florida coach Will Muschamp didn’t mention Tabor’s incident during his presser today at SEC Media Days.
Muschamp has since released the following statement: “Jalen has faced consequences for his actions and is very remorseful. He is aware that this is not how we represent the University of Florida.”
