Two Florida true freshmen were charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana earlier this week, Jacksonville TV station WTLV reported, citing a report from the University of Florida Police.

Both players – linebacker Ventrell Miller and wide receiver James Robinson (pictured above) – are from Lakeland, Fla., and both have been in trouble before. Miller, who went to Kathleen High, already had been suspended from the season opener against Michigan for misuse of school funds; Robinson, who went to Lakeland High, had been cited for marijuana while on a recruiting visit to Ohio State in January.

WTLV reported that UF Police said a residential assistant smelled a “strong odor of burnt cannabis emanating in the air” outside of an apartment in the on-campus Keys residential complex; the RA called UF police, and the police report said a suite mate identified Robinson as the person who occupied the room from which the odor was emanating.

WTLV said both players were issued a notice to appear and that an on-call dean was notified.

GatorBait.net reported that there were no reports logged in Alachua County court records relating to the incident.
