Baylor WR Arrested On Drug Charges

Created on May. 03, 2014 3:20 PM EST

There aren't many positive college football headlines as we move toward the summer months. Today is no exception as Baylor receiver Robbie Rhodes was arrested Friday on drug charges, the Waco Tribune reported.

Rhodes, previously cited for possession of drug paraphernalia, is charged with possession of marijuana and tampering with physical evidence following a traffic stop before 4 a.m., according to the paper.

Coach Art Briles reportedly is aware of the situation and is expected to address it at some point. Discipline may be coming for Rhodes.

It's a mixed bag for Baylor. Rhodes caught 10 passes during an injury-plagued freshman season in 2013. ESPN's Travis Haney recently rated the Bears receivers as one of the Top 10 deepest position groups in all of college football, and Briles' system has continued to produce no matter who plays at the skill positions. But the former four-star recruit Rhodes was expected to be one of Bryce Petty's top options after Antwan Goodley, and now he faces legal trouble involving drugs for the second time.

Even if Rhodes faces a suspension, it shouldn't be a big deal for Baylor on the field, but no program wants these headlines.
