Kentucky football’s Marcus Walker was arrested early Thursday morning in Lexington on drug trafficking charges. Those charges include drug paraphernalia, trafficking marijuana (over five pounds) and trafficking a controlled substance (four or more grams of cocaine):
#1 DRUG PARAPHERNALIA – BUY/POSSESS
#2 TRAF IN MARIJUANA ( > 5 LBS.) 1ST OFF
#3 TRAFF IN CONT SUB, 1ST DEGREE, 1ST OFF – (> OR = 4 GMS COCAINE)
Walker was set to be a part of UK’s defensive back rotation in 2018 as a junior safety. He signed with Kentucky in 2015 as a four-star recruit out of Florida, and played in 12 of 13 games last year as a sophomore with five total tackles.
He was really expected to provide depth and see even more playing time this fall, but it’s safe to say that has changed with his arrest.
