MISSOULA — A suspended University of Montana football player has pleaded guilty to a felony drug charge in exchange for a recommended deferred sentence.

Twenty-year-old Trevor Poole, of Spokane, Wash., pleaded guilty Tuesday to possession of dangerous drugs.

The former tackle was arrested in late October at a large Halloween party and suspended from the team. He acknowledged buying two "molly" pills, a drug similar to ecstasy.

In exchange for the guilty plea, prosecutors agreed to recommend an 18-month deferred sentence that could lead to the conviction being removed from his record.

Poole's sentencing is set for January.
