(BLOOMINGTON) - Indiana University freshman football player Jerome Johnson was cited Saturday on a charge of illegal possession and consumption of alcohol.

Johnson is a a three-star defensive tackle prospect from Mississippi.

According to Indiana University Police Lt. Craig Munroe, the resident assistant staff at Briscoe Quad found 18-year-old Johnson passed out in a stairwell and called police at 1:40 a.m. Saturday

Officers called an ambulance after they struggled to get identification information from the 6-foot-3, 300-pound lineman. He was transported to IU Health Bloomington Hospital, where he was treated and then cited to appear in court.

Johnson's citation comes after Indiana suspended six players prior to its season opener Thursday at Florida International.

Receiver Simmie Cobbs, safety Chase Dutra, defensive tackle Ralph Green III, cornerbacks Wesley Green and Noel Padmore and defensive back Jake Attar were each suspended for "not living up to their responsibilities to the program at different times since the conclusion of the 2015 season." Wesley Green was suspended indefinitely.
