A University of Tennessee student dismissed from the football team earlier this month was arrested on a drug charge Wednesday, according to arrest records.
Trent Taylor, 20, was booked into the Knox County Detention Facility for possession of a Schedule VI controlled substance, according to online arrest records.
Taylor, a freshman defensive lineman from Lakeland, Fla., played in one game and stopped attending practices midway through the season. Then-coach Derek Dooley said he was concentrating exclusively on academics.
UT officials announced earlier this month that Taylor would no longer be a member of the program moving forward.
Taylor was listed as an inactive student in the university directory after the semester ended. A campus address, however, is listed for Taylor in his arrest record.
A three-star defensive line prospect in the 247 Composite, Taylor chose Tennessee over an offer from Miami (Fla.).
Further details of the arrest were not immediately available.
