The four players, all described as rising sophomores, are defensive end Byron Cowart, cornerback Carlton Davis, wide receiver Ryan Davis, and cornerback Jeremiah Dinson.
According to al.com, the four were arrested at 11:00 PM on the evening on Saturday, April 30, "at the 100 block of E. Samford Avenue."
Malzahn responded in a statement that he was "aware of the situation and we will handle this matter appropriately."
Second degree marijuana possession is described by al.com as a "Class A misdemeanor." It carries a penalty of up to a year in prison, and a $6,000 fine.
Carlton Davis is the highest-profile (pardon the pun) athlete of the four players. He made 56 tackles and three interceptions during the 2015 season, and was named to the 2015 SEC All-Freshmen Team.
