School suspension lifted for Marcus Sales

Troy Butler, Marcus Sales

Slowly but surely, Syracuse wide receiver Marcus Sales is making his way back from his arrest over the summer on felony drug charges.

The Syracuse Post-Standard reports that Sales has had an interim suspension lifted by a school judiciary board that allowed him to remain enrolled at the school but not attend classes. Sales was hit with a slew of drug charges in July when he was pulled over for running a red light. Police found multiple drugs in the car and Sales was suspended by both the football team and the university.

Those charges were eventually dropped late last month when the grand jury cited a lack of proof that he was aware of the presence of drugs.

Sales’ lawyer, Michael Vavonese, said that an underlying complain from the original drug charges is still pending with the judicial board. Coach Doug Marrone says he has not spoken with Sales and made no indication he was prepared to let him back on the team any time soon.

Sales had 26 receptions for 414 yards and four touchdowns last season.

    So how does he stay eligible if he can’t go to class??
