Report: Two Florida players, one already on suspension, cited for drug possession
Things seem to be getting even more ugly in Gainesville as two freshmen players have reportedly been cited for drug use in their on-campus apartment.
The players were cited Monday according to Matthew Head and Neal Bennett of WTLV. According to their report, freshmen Ventrell Miller and James Robinson were charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Robinson, you may recall, was cited for drug use at Ohio State last winter during his recruitment. That incident resulted in several programs backing off from their interest in him, however, Florida obviously took another route.
Robinson was rated a four-star recruit and the No. 19 overall receiver prospect in the nation during the last recruiting cycle according to 247Sports. He arrived late to Gainesville after he was cleared to enter school late in the summer.
Also of note, Miller is already facing a suspension for the Michigan game following his role in the credit card fraud scheme cooked up by seven Florida players. He came to Gainesville rated as a three-star recruit and the No. 76 overall prospect from the state of Florida per 247Sports.
At this time, the Florida football program has not issued a reaction to the news.
