UNLPD: Husker football player found with marijuana in dorm
A Nebraska football player was ticketed for possession of marijuana Monday night.
University Police said officers found freshman safety Myles Farmer with a small amount of marijuana at the University Suites dorms around 11:30 p.m. Monday.
Farmer, a three-star prospect from Atlanta, signed with the Huskers in 2019. He was ranked among the top 50 safeties nationally by Rivals and among the top 60 safeties in the country in the 247Sports Composite rankings, and had offers from several other high-profile programs, according to his profile on the team's website.
Farmer is at least the fourth football player to be cited for a marijuana-related offense in the program in recent months. Star recruit Wan'Dale Robinson was cited for marijuana possession last month. Robinson's citation came just days after running back Maurice Washington was found with drug paraphernalia. Senior defensive back Jeramiah Stovall was ticketed for marijuana possession earlier this month.
Athletic Department officials said in a statement, “We are aware of the situation and are addressing it.”
