Indefinitely suspended since an April arrest, Willie Scott has (surprise!) seen the punitive measure rescinded just in time for the start of a new season.
The defensive end, head coach Paul Rhoads confirmed Tuesday, has left the off-field doghouse and been reinstated to the Cyclones football program. The lineman had been barred from participating in all team activities until the start of summer camp, in which he’s participated the past three weeks.
Last season, the lineman started all 13 games for the Cyclones after playing in all 13 games the year before with no starts. He was credited with 37 tackles, two tackles for loss and one sack.
In April, Scott was arrested for possession of a controlled substance following a traffic stop on campus. The arresting officer noted in his report that Scott had a “green leafy substance located on his lap, consistent with the appearance of marijuana.” He was suspended shortly after the arrest.
