Jason Smith‘s road back to The Plains appears to have hit a rather significant speed bump.
Multiple media outlets are reporting that the JUCO quarterback was arrested very early Sunday morning on multiple charges. Those charges include possession of marijuana and two counts of attempting to elude the police.
Smith signed with Auburn in February of 2013, but failed to qualify academically. He verbally recommitted to the Tigers earlier this year and was expected to once again sign with AU this December.
It’s unclear what if any impact this will have on those plans.
Despite taking a redshirt at Mississippi Gulf Coast College for the 2013 season, Smith is rated as one of the top JUCO prospects for the 2015 recruiting cycle. Coming out of high school in Mobile, Ala., Smith was rated as a four-star recruit by Rivals.com.
That same recruiting service lists Smith as one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the JUCO ranks.
