Knoxville (WVLT) - A judge has set a trial date for a former UT walk-on football player facing drug charges.
Authorities say in June, they pulled over 21-year-old Justin Jackson and found him in possession of crack cocaine and marijuana.
Jackson is a former West High School and Maryville College stand-out.
Shortly after Jackson's arrest, head coach Phillip Fulmer announced he was no longer on the team.
Jackson is expected to stand trial January 17th.
