Former Arkansas and USC quarterback Mitch Mustain was arrested in Los Angeles on a felony narcotics charge Tuesday night. ESPN Los Angeles reported that Mustain was originally unable to make his $30,000 bail. The AP says Mustain was charged with trying to sell prescription drugs.
Mustain was one of the most coveted, highly-recruited quarterbacks in the history of high school football and won multiple national Player of the Year awards. He originally enrolled at Arkansas and had an 8-0 record as a true freshman but transferred to USC after inexplicably being benched by Razorbacks coach Houston Nutt. Mustain graduated this season having started just one game in his USC career while sitting behind Mark Sanchez and Matt Barkley. Mustain started the USC/Notre Dame game this past season. The Trojans lost that game.
USC was letting Mustain work out at their facilities in anticipation of the upcoming NFL Draft.
