Baylor dismisses WR Robbie Rhodes

Baylor dismisses WR Robbie Rhodes

The Baylor football program has dismissed sophomore Wide Receiver Robbie Rhodes in what the team is calling "a mutual parting of ways."

Rhodes was arrested in May on charges of marijuana possession and tampering with physical evidence during a traffic stop in Waco. However, the McLennan County District Attorney's Office declined to pursue those misdemeanor charges, citing Rhodes' history of no failed drug tests while in the Baylor program and additional evidence that proved he had no knowledge of the drugs located in the vehicle.

Rhodes was rated the No. 3 wide reciever in the country out of Fort Worth Southwest High School in 2013.

He caught 10 passes for 157 yards and 0 touchdowns as a freshman.
