Ex-Ohio State player faces charges for weapons, heroin and oxycodone

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The prosecutor’s office in Columbus says a former Ohio State football player previously caught up in the school’s memorabilia scandal has been indicted on felony drug and weapons charges.

The Franklin County prosecutor said 26-year-old former Buckeyes receiver Ray Small was indicted this week on felony drug possession and trafficking charges that included firearms specifications. Records showed he was in jail Friday but not give attorney information.

Authorities said the grand jury indictments stemmed from an April search of Small’s Columbus apartment that yielded heroin and oxycodone, as well as a semi-automatic handgun and assault rifle.

Small played at OSU from 2006 to 2009 was one of several players involved in a high-profile football memorabilia scandal. He also was indicted earlier this year on drug charges in Meigs County.
