On Wednesday, Rutgers dismissed defensive back K.J. Gray and linebacker Brendan DeVera for an unspecified violation of team rules.
Asked if his dismissal was connected to the investigation, Gray said his lawyer advised him "to keep quiet about the situation."

NJ Advance Media reported separately Thursday that Gray was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and multiple traffic offenses after a June vehicle stop in East Brunswick, N.J.

The report also said that Rutgers officials were not aware of the arrest at the time of Gray's dismissal and that they learned of it only when NJ Advance Media asked them for a response.

Gray, a rising junior, played in 20 games (four starts) in two seasons with the Scarlet Knights. He led RU's secondary with 58 tackles last season.

Those two things aren’t likely to change any time soon, but until recently, the smart money would have been on the federal government legalizing it before the NCAA did.That might not be the case anymore, and while that’s mostly because of, well, who’s running the federal government, it’s also because the NCAA and specifically member institutions (as the NCAA loves to call schools) taking a more relaxed stance on the substance.
