Kansas WR Trevor Wilson Suspended Indefinitely For Alleged Aggravated Assault Charge
Kansas University has suspended wide receiver Trevor Wilson following his arrest alongside freshman receiver Tanaka Scott. Wilson was suspended indefinitely after he was reportedly arrested near the campus and was charged with alleged suspicion of aggravated assault and use of a deadly weapon for the incident, which is a low-level felony. Wilson was reportedly kept at Douglas County Jail overnight.
The arrest happened on Thursday, after a man had called the police. According to the Lawrence Police Department spokesperson, the man claimed the driver of a red Dodge Charger pulled up next to him and allegedly displayed a weapon after opening the car door. Police later found both Wilson and Scott, along with their vehicles and two weapons. The weapons were reportedly found nearby at a Club Car Wash.
Kansas Head Coach Lance Leipold spoke to media, stating how “disappointed” he was not just with Wilson and Scott but also with himself as head coach of the football program.
“Definitely disappointed — disappointed that those young men put themselves in that situation but equally disappointed in myself. As a head coach, it is my responsibility to put out messages and to put it on young men to make great decisions in wherever it may be and wherever that takes place. So, obviously, I haven’t done enough in my role to prevent those situations and I’ll continue to work to be better.”
Wilson played in all twelve games in his sophomore year, and started in seven of them. Wilson reportedly transferred from Buffalo to follow Leipold to Kansas University. The receiver was expected to play a significant role for the team after he reportedly ranked second on the team in both catches and receiving yards, posting 27 receptions for 324 yards
