It’s been quite the day of news regarding Texas’ wide receiver room.
Reports surfaced late Monday evening that one of Texas’ 2021 signees was arrested over the weekend. On top of that, slot receiver Jake Smith entered the NCAA transfer portal.
Three-star wide receiver Keithron Lee was arrested on assault of a family member charges on Sunday in Bryan, Texas. His bond was set at $5,000 and he has since been released.
First-year head coach Steve Sarkisian has now suspended Lee from all team activities for the foreseeable future.
“We’re aware of the situation with Keithron Lee,” Sarkisian said. “We have talked with his family and he has been suspended from all team activities at this time as we continue to monitor the legal process.”
Lee was rated the No. 77 wide receiver in the country for the 2021 recruiting class. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound playmaker was expected to provide depth in the slot role for the Longhorns.
