JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Two former Arkansas State University football players plead guilty to drug charges Friday.

Tyler Trosin and Chris Stone were arrested with former Red Wolf Jeremey Fulcher in December.

Police say Trosin and Stone had cocaine and marijuana in their possession.

Prosecuting Attorney for the Second Judicial District Scott Ellington said the two, who were first time drug offenders, will receive 36 months probation.

Stone, who played as a defensive end and red shirt senior and Trosin, who was listed by A-State as a wide receiver and is a true senior, were suspended from playing in the New Orleans Bowl. It would have been their final game playing as Red Wolves.
