MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A former University of Montana men’s basketball player faces felony charges for allegedly selling prescription stimulants.

The Missoulian reports (http://bit.ly/1lbIEIZ ) 24-year-old Eric Taylor Hutchison is charged with one count of criminal distribution of dangerous drugs. He is scheduled to enter a plea in District Court on Thursday.

Charging documents say a confidential informant contacted Missoula police to report that Hutchison was offering to sell Adderall, which is used to treat narcolepsy and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Prosecutors say Hutchison twice sold Adderall to undercover law enforcement officers.

Court records say Hutchison told police in May that he had sold about 1,000 tablets for $5 each.

Hutchison is a 6-foot-9 center from Longview, Washington, who started for UM in all but 10 games over the past two seasons.
