Texas A&M wide receiver Demond Demas was arrested in Brazos County, Texas, on suspicion of marijuana possession on Tuesday, according to the Houston Chronicle's Brent Zwerneman

Demas allegedly had less than two ounces of marijuana at the time and was released from custody after posting a $2,000 bond.

The 6'3" pass-catcher made four appearances as a freshman in 2020. He arrived as the No. 25 player overall and third-best receiver in the 2020 recruiting class, per 247Sports' composite rankings.

Demas missed Texas A&M's victories over LSU on No. 28 and Auburn on Dec. 5. On both occasions, head coach Jimbo Fisher told reporters he had been "unavailable" and didn't provide any information beyond that.

The Aggies' top four players in receiving yards (Ainias Smith, Jalen Wydermyer, Chase Lane and Caleb Chapman) are all slated to return in 2021. Shadrach Banks, the No. 18 receiver in 247Sports' composite rankings for 2021, has already enrolled as well.

Following a disappointing first year in College Station, carving out a role in the passing game could be equally difficult for Demas as a sophomore.
