COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A former Ohio State University football player previously caught up in the school's memorabilia scandal has been sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to drug trafficking.

The sentence issued Thursday in Franklin County for 27-year-old Ray Small is expected to run concurrent with a shorter sentence he received in a drug case in Meigs County.

The Columbus Dispatch ( ) reports that Small apologized in court and told the judge he takes responsibility for what he did.

Small was charged after police found heroin and prescription pain and anti-anxiety pills while searching his apartment last year.

He was a wide receiver for Ohio State from 2006 to 2009. He was among the players involved in the memorabilia scandal that led to the forced resignation of coach Jim Tressel.
