NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - An Oklahoma football player is due in court next week on a felony drug charge.
The Norman Transcript reports (http://is.gd/BeMInf ) that cornerback Joe Powell has a preliminary conference set for Dec. 18 on one felony charge of unlawful possession of a controlled drug with intent to deliver.
Norman police arrested Powell on Oct 8 after he was allegedly linked to a FedEx package from California that contained four pounds of marijuana.
An OU spokesman says Powell has been suspended from the team since his arrest.
Powell is the third Sooner player to face drug charges this fall. Wide receiver Jalen Saunders and defensive back Cortez Johnson were charged this month with misdemeanor marijuana possession. They are due in court Jan. 8.
