Another TCU receiver arrested on marijuana charge

Brandon Carter

TCU wide receiver Brandon Carter was arrested Tuesday night and charged for possession of marijuana. He was released from jail Wednesday morning according to The Star-Telegram.

Carter was pulled over while driving a Lexus belonging to Alexis Harris. Harris was also charged for possession of marijuana and is the owner of the vehicle, which alerted police of a warrant hit during a routine patrol. Because of the warrant hit on the Lexus, police pulled over the car and discovered the marijuana allegedly in possession of Carter and Harris. Harris had other outstanding warrants, according to the Star-Telegram report.

This is another blow for Carter at TCU. Heading into the fall Carter was expected to be one of the top offensive players after taking some time off last season at the end of the season to deal with some personal issues. He has been absent from spring drills to focus on academics over football. The 2013 season started with Carter battling a hand injury as well.

Time will tell how TCU responds to this arrest of Carter. The Horned Frogs have already dismissed one receiver this spring. LaDarius Brown was removed from the roster in February following a marijuana possession arrest. If Carter is removed from the roster as well, the depth at receiver would take a serious hit, putting much pressure on Josh Doctson (sophomore) and Ty Slanina (freshman).

    Wow, did Gary Patterson ever make the wrong call by staying at TCU. He could probably have Brady Hoke’s job at Michigan right now if he’d jumped ship before the Big 12 move. Seven years with TCU in the Mountain West and he had a single year where they lost more than two games. Two years in the Big 12 going 7-6 and 4-8 last year. And now half the team is in trouble for drugs. His stock is falling like a stone right now.
