Incoming Iowa freshman running back Greg Garmon was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to numerous sources in Erie, Pa.

Garmon — who was expected to travel to Iowa City this week and begin summer training — was pulled over by police on June 1 at 6:35 p.m. and allegedly found with marijuana in the vehicle, reported WJET-TV.

Garmon rushed for 2,859 yards and 27 touchdowns while playing at McDowell High School.

With Garmon's scholarship in jeopardy, Iowa has four remaining running backs on the roster: walk-on junior Andre Dawson, sophomores Damon Bullock and De'Andre Johnson, and incoming freshman Barkley Hill.
