     University of South Carolina wide receiver Dion Lecorn was arrested Sunday on charges of misdemeanor marijuana possession.   Freshman receiver Matt Clements and a friend, John Casselberry, were also present, but not arrested.

     According to the incident report, the three admitted to smoking pot after Cayce police responded to a complaint of loud music coming from a car and detected a strong odor. 

    Lecorn said the marijuana was his, according to the report.   He was released Monday morning from the Lexington County jail on a personal recognizance bond.

     Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier has suspended Lecorn and Clements from the team indefinitely.

     Clements is also wanted by the Collier County (Fla.) sheriff's office for a failure to appear bench warrant, but will not be extradited.

     Lecorn and Clements are members of the highly-touted recruiting class of 2007.   The wide receiving corps of that class was ranked No. 1 nationally by Rivals.com.
