Greg Reid, a senior cornerback and star kick returner, has been dismissed from the Florida State football team for a violation of team rules, according to a statement released Wednesday morning by head coach Jimbo Fisher.
The dismissal comes on the heels of a mid-July arrest for marijuana possession and driving with a suspended license in Reid's home state of Georgia.
Reid, who opted to return for his senior season after flirting with professional football, was also arrested in September of last year for perjury in an unofficial proceeding and resisting arrest, but those charges were eventually dropped the by the State Attorney's office.
A few weeks prior to that arrest, Reid and former high school teammate Telvin Smith were suspended for FSU's week two game against Charleston Southern for a violation of team rules.
Reid, a former five-star recruit from Valdosta Lowndes County, had seven career interceptions and three forced fumbles during his three years at FSU. Also an outstanding return specialist, Reid finished his FSU career with 1,553 kick return yards (24.7 per attempt), 1,117 punt return yards (10.2 per attempt) and three punt returns for a touchdown.
He was named a consensus freshman All-American as a returner in 2009, was an honorable mention All-ACC selection in 2009 and 2010 and was recently named to the Preseason All-ACC team for 2012.
