InsideRunnerSports has learned that UTSA has parted ways with 2016 signee Jaquelle Green.
A heralded recruit from D’Iberville (MS), Green was a signing day surprise when he inked his letter of intent to UTSA this past February. Rated as a high three-star prospect by Scout (and a four-star prospect by other services), Green was widely considered one of the top players in UTSA’s 2016 recruiting class.
But in March, Green was arrested for allegedly robbing a pizza delivery driver at gunpoint (Story from the Sun Herald: LINK).
During spring practices, UTSA Head Coach Frank Wilson said was asked if Green would ever be a part of the team. Wilson said that it was uncertain and declined further comment directing media to his previously issued written statement of: "We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering information."
According to sources, Green’s case is still unresolved. Because of that, it was felt that there were simply too many uncertainties surrounding Green for UTSA to take a chance moving forward.
Green was rated the #2 Safety in Mississippi and was committed to Louisville prior to signing with UTSA.
