Florida State cornerback Greg Reid, a former five-star recruit and one's of the nation's top punt returners, has been dismissed from the team, the school announced Wednesday.

Reid, who would have been a senior, was arrested less than a month ago for marijuana possession and multiple traffic violations. (He has denied the drug possession). It was his second arrest of the year. He had been arrested for lying to police last fall, but charges were later dropped in that case.
