Former Minnesota wide receiver Jeff Jones was arrested and charged with felony drug possession Friday, reports the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Jones, who went to high school in Minneapolis, also had a firearm with him at the time of his arrest, which means a conviction would carry a three-year sentence at minimum, according to the report.

Jones was one of Minnesota’s top recruits for the class of 2014. He spent two years with the program, before announcing last December he was transferring to Iowa Western Community College. He was kicked off the Iowa Western team in April for a violation of team rules.

Jones played in only three games during his time with the Gophers, missing all of his first year due to academic ineligibility.
