Duke LB Tyree Glover Charged With Cocaine Trafficking

Yes, you read the headline correctly. Per PFT and The Durham Herald Sun, Duke sophomore linebacker  Tyree Glover, who was dismissed from the team Wednesday, was arrested yesterday and charged with trafficking cocaine. Here are some details from The Sun:

The 6-foot-1, 255-pound sophomore linebacker from Crescent City, Fla., was being held in the Durham County jail Thursday in lieu of $750,000 bond.

Glover was arrested by Durham police on Gregson Street and charged with trafficking in cocaine, police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said Wednesday.

Michael said police then obtained a search warrant and searched his dorm room on the Duke campus where they found marijuana.

Michael said police confiscated 29.6 grams of powder cocaine and 72.4 grams of marijuana.

Glover is the fourth promising player from Duke coach David Cutcliffe’s first full recruiting class that signed letters of intent in February 2009, to find himself in trouble with the law.

The other three — all from Georgia — were booted off the team in January 2010 after being arrested on firearms charges.

The three eventually pleaded guilty in an incident that involved the firing of a gun on campus.

I think someone needs to take a serious look at coach Cutcliffe’s recruiting. Four players arrested out his first recruiting class is a bit of an eye-opener. And in regards to Glover; why the hell is a Division I athlete selling cocaine and weed out of his dorm room? Who are these kids’ role models, Nino Brown and the Cash Money Brothers? I wonder if he nicknamed his housing building “The Carter”.

Oh, and this is the same Duke Uninversity who has over-privileged students send athletes such as Elton Brand and Kyrie Irving letters of disdain and hate when they decide leaving college to become a professional and  provide for their families. Yet they have coke distributors, pistol poppers and accused rapists still on campus.

Maybe a change of priorities is in order in Durham. I’m just sayin’.

    ok dont be quick to judge someone and you have no clue of what kind of person they are. Tyree made a mistake everyone does no one is perfect. We all make stupid descions in are life time we just so happen not to get caught. Tyree never got in trouble with he was home. It was up there that he got in trouble. As for his coach he odoes fine on recruting i know some of his team players and they are just fine. Tyree is a wonderful man father boyfriend and athlete. So again dont be quick to judge someone let god do that its not your place.
