Former Ohio State player pleads to drug charges

COLUMBUS — A former Ohio State University football player previously caught up in the school’s memorabilia scandal faces a four-year prison term after pleading guilty to drug trafficking.

Ray Small is to be sentenced April 3 after pleading guilty Monday in Columbus to three felony counts of drug trafficking. He also faces drug trafficking charges in Meigs County in southeastern Ohio.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the 26-year-old Small was indicted in July, three months after Columbus police found heroin and prescription pain and anti-anxiety pills during a search of his apartment.

Small, a wide receiver at OSU from 2006 to 2009, was one of several players involved in a high-profile football memorabilia scandal that led to the forced resignation of coach Jim Tressel.
