A trial date has been set for suspended University of Akron basketball player Alex Abreu.
The Beacon Journal reports Abreu is due in court on July 24 on felony drug charges after he was arrested in early March when police say Abreu and Austin Lee Durgala, both 21, accepted a delivery of five pounds of marijuana.
Abreu's attorney, Bob Meeker, commented on the allegations saying that the package was delivered to the residence of Durgala and was not addressed to Abreu.
Abreu pleaded not guilty to the charges which include trafficking and possession of marijuana. He is currently free on bond.
