Sammy Watkins, the Best Freshman in College Football Last Season, Got Arrested [UPDATE: It's Marijuana]

Sammy Watkins, the Clemson star receiver who put up mind-boggling numbers as a freshman, was arrested early this morning according to CBS 7. It’s unclear what Watkins was arrested for, but he was “booked into the City of Clemson’s holding facility.”

[UPDATE: Per an email from Clemson, the arrest was for possession of controlled substance and simple possession of marijuana. Both are misdemeanors.]

Watkins was unstoppable in the ACC as a true freshman: 82 catches for 1,219 yards and 12 TDs. He’ll be a Heisman candidate in 2012. [CBS 7 via ACC Sports]
