Alabama newcomer and former All-American cornerback Eli Ricks was charged with speeding, driving without insurance and possession of marijuana Sunday night in Mississippi.
Ricks, who moved to Alabama from LSU out of season, was arrested by the Mississippi Highway Patrol and booked at 6 p.m. 17.15
According to an online database, this was Ricks’ first charge of possession of marijuana, and his bond was set at $ 0.
Ricks, a 6-foot-2 cornerback from California, started his career at LSU, earning Freshman All-SEC and AP All-America honors during his first season.
He entered the transfer portal in November, about a month after the firing of head coach Ed Orgeron.
Ricks is expected to compete for a starting role in Alabama, which lost starting cornerback Josh Jobe to the NFL.
