Receiver Bronson Boyd, a 4-star recruit out of Arlington, TX, had only been on campus a few days, but he’s already headed back home. Texas Tech officials have confirmed that he has been dismissed from the program.
Officially, the Red Raiders are remaining mum on what lead to Boyd’s dismissal.
“I don’t know yet the full details,” Tech senior associate athletic director Robert Giovannetti told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal. “I’ve just been told we can confirm he’s no longer on the team.”
However, rumors are swirling that an altercation occurred on the night of January 27th between Boyd and another early enrollee. Boyd is said to have allegedly pulled a pocket knife and cut the face of the other player.
The loss of Boyd is a tough blow for coach Kingsbury and staff as Boyd was not only a high-profile recruit, but he was the only receiver committed in the Red Raider’s 2017 class so far.
