NOTE: This story has been updated since Sunday.
Indiana star relief pitcher Johnny Hoffman has been charged with possession with intent to deliver over ten pounds of marijuana, a Class C felony, according to Indiana University chief of police Keith Cash. He was also removed from the IU baseball team, with the stated reason being a “violation of team standards.”
According to Cash, Hoffman was receiving large amounts of marijuana through the U.S. mail. Cash said the IU police confiscated two packages totaling over 20 pounds of marijuana. Cash said Hoffman admitted to engaging in the activity for over two years.
Hoffman was issued a summons on the charge on Jan. 4. He will have his initial hearing on Jan. 16.
IU coach Tracy Smith refused further comment on that matter through an IU spokesman after Indiana put out a release on Hoffman’s status Sunday.
Hoffman, a 6-foot-1, 210-pound right-hander from Oceanside, Calif., led Indiana in wins and earned run average last season despite pitching exclusively from the bullpen. He was named first-team All-Big Ten as the conference’s top relief pitcher, going 8-2 with a 2.27 earned run average and five saves. He struck out 35 batters and walked just 17, holding opponents to a .243 batting average. He returned for his senior season and was expected to be one of the top pitchers in the conference again.
