Freshman DB cited for marijuana possession

GAINESVILLE -- Florida five-star freshman cornerback Jalen Tabor was cited May 27 for misdemeanor maijuana possession of less than 20 grams, as first reported by 247 Sports’ Thomas Goldkamp. 

Tabor, an early enrollee and UF’s top-rated prospect in 2014, reached a deferred prosecution agreement on June 3.  

“Jalen has faced the consequences for his actions and is very remorseful,” coach Will Muschamp said in  a statement to reporters in Hoover, Alabama. 

“He is aware that this is not how we represent [the University of Florida.]"

Tabor’s mom, Merri, tweeted out her support late Monday evening.

The Under Armour All-American has already been disciplined by the team and school, and will not face any additional punishment, per The Gainesville Sun. 

Tabor’s arrest is Florida’s first run-in with the law since junior linebacker Antonio Morrison’s infamous barking-dog incident last July 21.
