A former University of Iowa football player facing up to seven drug charges will now be represented by one of Iowa's top lawyers, online court records said.

Derrell Johnson-Koulianos, previously a star wide receiver for the Hawkeyes, will now be represented by Des Moines defense attorney Alfredo Parrish.

Parrish filed paperwork with the Johnson County Courthouse on Wednesday in order to be admitted to practice on the case, online court records said.

Parrish has previously represented University of Iowa athletes, including former football player Abe Satterfield, and fotmer basketball player Pierre Pierce, court documents show.

Johnson-Koulianos was charged with four counts of possession of a controlled substance, one count of keeping a drug house, and two counts of unlawful possession of a prescription drug after Iowa City police officers allegedly found marijuana, cocaine, prescription drugs, and more than $3,000 in cash in his residence, according to police reports.

Possession of a controlled substance is an aggravated misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in prison or $1,875. Keeping a drug house is an aggravated misdemeanor, punishable by up to two years in prison and $6,250 in fines. Unlawful possession of a prescription drug is also a serious misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in jail or $1,500.
