The marijuana charge against Alabama defensive back Eli Ricks has been dismissed by the Jones County Justice Court during a hearing on Thursday.

Ricks was arrested back on May 1 by the Mississippi Highway Patrol and charged with speeding, having no insurance and possession of marijuana. According to the initial report from AL.com along with the dropped charge, Ricks pled guilty to the speeding ticket and received a fine.

A former five-star recruit in 2020, Ricks transferred to the Crimson Tide back in December after spending his first two seasons at LSU.

During the spring, Ricks primarily worked with the second-team defense and will compete for a starting role this upcoming season.
