247Sports.com photo / Tennessee's 15 early signees Wednesday included quarterback Kaidon Salter of Cedar Hill, Texas, one of the top dual-threat talents in the 2021 recruiting cycle.

The updated tally for Kaidon Salter as a University of Tennessee quarterback is two marijuana-related incidents and zero practice snaps.

Salter, a four-star early enrollee from Dallas who was suspended for all of spring practice following a Stokely Hall confrontation in early March, was pulled over early Saturday morning in Knoxville along with three-star offensive tackle signee Amari McNeill. According to university police, Salter and McNeill were stopped for not having their tail lights on, and they admitted to having about four grams of marijuana.

McNeill, who is from the Atlanta suburb of Suwanee and arrived in Knoxville for summer workouts, admitted to throwing a bag of marijuana out of the vehicle and was charged with simple possession. Knoxville's WBIR television was the first to report the news.

Salter was charged in March with misdemeanor drug possession and drug paraphernalia possession along with redshirt freshman linebacker Martavius French, freshman defensive tackle Isaac Washington and freshman linebacker Aaron Willis. French and Washington have since entered the NCAA transfer portal, while Salter and Willis were recently reinstated by Tennessee first-year coach Josh Heupel.

All four of those players have court dates in October.
