Penn State police issued an incoming football recruit an underage drinking citation, just days after another reserve football player was issued a DUI.
Glenn A. Carson, 26 Popper Street, Manahawakin, N.J., was charged with public drunkenness and underage drinking in connection with a July 25 incident that occurred at the intersection of Burrowes Road and Pollock Road, Penn State police said.
Carson was rated as a four-star linebacker prospect by Scout.com.
At about 3 a.m. July 12, police charged senior reserve offensive tackle Isaako "Ako" Poti, 1400 Martin Street, with DUI after he registered a blood-alcohol content (BAC) of .112 percent, the State College Police Department said.
Poti was also charged with driving on roadways laned for traffic, police said. He made a turn onto North Atherton Street without using his turn signals and drifted into the right lane, police said.
A junior college transfer, Poti backed up starter Dennis Landolt at right tackle as a junior in 2007 and redshirted last year.
Earlier this month, reserve wide receiver James McDonald was also issued a DUI after he recorded a .096 BAC July 9 in the Nittany Lion Inn parking lot , police said.
Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley and Penn State Sports Information Director Jeff Nelson could not be reached for comment.
