TCU Player Tweets Football Team 'Not Connected' To Cocaine, LSD Busts In Drug Sting

Jeff Olson, a now-graduated offensive lineman for TCU, said on Twitter Wednesday that the football players involved in the 17-person drug bust at TCU weren't involved with most of the drugs mentioned, implying that marijuana was the only drug being sold by the four players charged with dealing drugs:

Olson's Tweet would imply that the four accused players -- Tanner Brock, Ty Horn, Devin Johnson and D.J. Yendrey-- were only involved in the sale of marijuana. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram has a timeline from various affidavits that Horn, Brock and Yendrey all sold marijuana to undercover police officers.

Stefan Stevenson wrote in the Star-Telegram:

The documents say that coach Gary Patterson sprung a surprise drug test on the football team on Feb. 1, National Signing Day, and that Brock later told an undercover officer that there "would be about 60 people being screwed" as a result of the test. Sources said Patterson ordered the drug test after a prize recruit told him that he would not attend TCU because of drug use by players.

During a drug buy, an undercover officer asked Johnson about the surprise drug test.

"What can they do? Eighty-two people failed it," Johnson said.
