FORT WORTH (April 5, 2012)—Former Copperas Cove High School standout Tanner Brock, 21, and former Midway High School standout Tyler “Ty” Horn, 21, were among 14 people charged Thursday in connection with the TCU drug investigation.
They and former defensive tackle D.J. Yendrey were charged with delivering a quarter-ounce to five pounds of marijuana.
The three TCU football players were among 17 Texas Christian University students arrested in February after a six-month investigation of campus drug dealing.
Brock (left), a junior linebacker, and Horn, a sophomore offensive tackle, were dismissed from the football program along with two other players caught up in the sting, defensive lineman D. J. Yendry and cornerback Devin Johnson.
Johnson was charged last month with three counts of delivering a quarter-ounce to five pounds of marijuana.
Convictions could mean as much as two years in state jail for Brock, Horn and Johnson.
Convictions could mean up to 10 years in prison for Yendry, who's charged with delivering in a drug-free zone.
The four are accused of selling marijuana to undercover officers, sometimes arranging deals around practices.
Brock missed the 2011 season because of an injury.
In the 2010, he was TCU’s leading tackler in a 13-0 season that ended with a Rose Bowl victory.
