There is so much about this story to enjoy.
Reports surfaced Saturday that Lakeland receiver James Robinson, a top Gators’ target with National Signing Day approaching Wednesday, was cited for possession of marijuana last weekend during his official visit to Ohio State.
In the state of Ohio, where marijuana possession has been somewhat decriminalized, possessing amounts up to 100 grams is considered a minor misdemeanor and violators will receive a citation and up to a $150 fine. There is no jail time and the incident does not become part of the defendant’s criminal record.
As dumbass moves go, taking weed on a recruiting trip ranks right up there with the best.
Corch dropped the kid like a hot potato, but Florida, as we all know, right now can’t be as choosy about whom it chases, and here’s a kid who didn’t get into enough trouble to require Huntley Johnson’s services to play for the Gators. (At least, not yet.) What to do, what to do?
Head coach James McElwain has had two current players cited for marijuana possession during his two seasons at UF. Running backs Mark Thompson and Jordan Scarlet both served one-game suspensions, so McElwain has show a bit of tolerance for this type of rules violation, since both players remained on the team and have been large contributors at times.
The man’s not even gonna break a sweat with this call.
