Florida football players Ventrell Miller and James Robinson were cited for marijuana possession in their on-campus apartment Monday, according to Matthew Head and Neal Bennett of WTLV.
“[Head coach Jim McElwain] is aware and it has been dealt with,” Florida said in a statement, per Edgar Thompson of the Orlando Sentinel.
Miller is one of the seven players on the Gators already suspended for the team’s opening game against Michigan. Per Brett McMurphy of ESPN, the suspended players used school-issued debit cards to buy electronics and then sell them for cash.
This also isn’t the first misstep for Robinson. The highly touted receiver was cited for marijuana possession in Columbus during his visit to Ohio State. While the Buckeyes stopped recruiting him, Florida gave him a second chance.
The two freshmen were caught Monday by a residential assistant, who notified police after smelling the marijuana from the hallway. They each admitted to owning one of the two bags found in the room by the officers.
