The Gamecocks' roster could be in further flux with this latest news.

With the South Carolina Gamecocks' men's basketball roster decreasing by two after Eric Cobb and Jamall Gregory were kicked off the team after being arrested for their role in recent vandalism with BB guns, there might be more trouble on the horizon. Freshman Raymond Doby, who saw action in 16 games this past season, was found in possession of marijuana last month and fined.

Doby was charged with a first-offense possession of one ounce or less of marijuana or 10 grams or less of hash on March 26, according to an incident report filed in Lexington County. He was fined $620.

...Doby is not participating in off-season workouts with the Gamecocks and has been told that he is currently not part of the program, according to a report from TheBigSpur.com’s John Whittle on April 11.

Without speculating too much, if Frank Martin's tolerance for vandalism is low, we'd imagine that his tolerance for possession of marijuana, though it was a small amount, would be even lower. It wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility to see Doby completely off the team's roster with this bit of news. UPDATE: Looks like Cobb and Gregory were arrested on the same charge.

We still don't know the situation behind the suspension of three other Gamecocks - Temarcus Blanton, Marcus Stroman, and Chris Silva - although we expect that to be revealed in due time.
