When Yonus Davis graduated from San Jose State University and was eligible for the 2009 draft, he stood a staggering 5 foot 6 inches and weighed 190 pounds. He rushed for 2,200 yards in his Spartans career and scored 13 touchdowns, getting 2nd team All-WAC his Senior year. With all of that, and an average 40 time, he didn't get selected in the NFL Draft.

So like many people during the Vietnam War, he took his talents north to Canada. He signed with the British Columbia Lions, where he rushed for 213 yards on 6.3/carry and 3 touchdowns last year. His main contributions were on special teams where he is the teams main returner, and he won CFL awards for his special teams prowess.

His stay in Canada may not be much longer, as he is currently detained in the US.

Davis is facing a single charge of possessing a controlled substance with intent to distribute in a Federal Court in California. Federal agents were posing as FedEx employees when they busted Davis with a box containing Ecstasy. According to reports, it was over 30 Kilograms of Ecstasy. According to court documents that were obtained by the Vancouver Sun, Davis admitted that he was expecting to receive 40 "boats" (1,000 pills) of Ecstasy. He claimed that the shipment he had received where he got busted was the second shipment from a Haitian man.

If convicted, he faces a $1 million fine and up to 20 years in prison.
