Just a day after USF coach Stan Heath lost senior B.J. Ajayi for the season due to an ACL tear, he received more bad news.

Junior Mike Mercer and Ohio State transfer Anthony Crater were arrested and charged with misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana, the Times and Tribune both reported.

Heath made a statement in a release early this morning.

This kind of behavior is unacceptable within our program,” Heath said. “We are reviewing the situation and once we have more information and all the facts, we’ll have further comment.”

Mercer was already ruled out for the remainder of the season with an ACL injury.

Crater, who won’t be available to play until next season due to NCAA transfer policy, had been at USF since the beginning of this semester.

Just about to tip here at the Sun Dome. I’ll be back with an update.
