Penn State’s Devon Smith hit with drug rap

This has not been the best of springs for Devon Smith.

The wide receiver missed the latter portion of Penn State’s spring practice with a sprained left foot.  Prior to that, campus police had seized drugs and drug paraphernalia from Smith’s residence.

Unfortunately, the legal chickens have come home to roost on the latter issue.

Citing a university police report, Bill Kline of the Allentown Morning Call reported early Saturday afternoon that Smith has been charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.  Here are a few of the details from last month that ultimately led to the charges facing Smith:

University police executed a search warrant and discovered “blunts, prescription drugs, marijuana and a scale”, the website wrote. The Daily Collegian confirmed the report, adding that a grinder was found as well.

The police were notified by a school employee that the apartment was possibly being burglarized, which initially led officers to the location.

Smith shared the on-campus apartment with Jack Crawford, whose final seasons with the Nittany Lions was last year but hadn’t lived in the residence for months leading up to the incident as he had been preparing for the NFL draft.

While Smith’s 25 receptions for 402 yards were good for third on the team as a true junior last season, he’s perhaps most famous for running into Joe Paterno during a practice last summer camp, injuring the legendary head coach.
