LINCOLN, NE — A misdemeanor drug charge against University of Nebraska receiver Stanley Morgan Jr. has been dropped, and teammate Antonio Reed is poised to go to trial next month stemming from the same traffic stop in Florida.
Morgan, of New Orleans, was arrested May 6 in Port Orange, Florida, after police found him to have in excess of 20 grams of marijuana. The charge was changed to a misdemeanor and last month was dropped, according to court records in Volusia County, Florida.
Reed, a safety from Memphis, Tennessee, has an Aug. 21 trial set for misdemeanor possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Coach Mike Riley said he would announce later whether either player will face team discipline. (For more information on this and other neighborhood stories, subscribe to Patch to receive daily newsletters and breaking news alerts. If you have an iPhone, click here to get the free Patch iPhone app.)
