(Sports Overtime) -- Alcoa all-state defensive back Brian Sommer has been kicked off the Alcoa High School football team.
Tuesday, Sommer was arrested on a simple charge of marijuana possession, sparking the dismissal.
Tornadoes head coach Gary Rankin told Sports Overtime's Daryl Hobby that Sommer broke major team rules, and won't be allowed back on the squad. Rankin couldn't comment on Sommer's academic future at Aloca High School.
Sommer is one of the more highly recruited players in the state.
He is a prospect Tennessee has recruited and offered a scholarship too.
Details of those offers are now obviously in limbo at this time.
