HUNTSVILLE, Texas — TCU running back Sewo Olonilua, who set a school bowl record with 194 yards rushing in a victory over California last season, has been arrested on drug possession charges.

The Walker County Sheriff’s Department said Thursday that Olonilua is facing third-degree felony charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance weighing more than 1 gram and less than 4 grams. 

Olonilua was arrested Tuesday and released on $4,000 bond a day later.

The 21-year-old Olonilua, who graduated Saturday with a season of eligibility remaining, is expected to be a key part of the TCU backfield this year. 

The school said it was aware of Olonilua’s arrest and looking into it.
