Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney has not made a team discipline decision regarding star receiver Sammy Watkins, and no timetable is in place to make a decision, according to an athletic department spokesperson.
Watkins was arrested on campus last month for possession of marijuana and two pills for which he did not have a prescription. The pills were medications commonly used to treat ADHD.
Last week, Watkins applied for pre-trial intervention. If Watkins is accepted and completes the program, it will allow his record to be cleared.
The program typically involves counseling and community service for first-time offenders.
Watkins’ attorney, Bob Arial, told reporters he expects Watkins to be accepted into the program.
Watkins earned numerous national honors last season after setting a number of freshman receiving records at Clemson. Watkins finished the year with 82 catches, 1,219 yards and 12 touchdowns.
