Last time we heard from former five-star wide receiver Markeith Ambles, he was leaving USC before the start of the 2011 season.
After some time away from the ranks of major college football that included a stop at Arizona Western Community College, Ambles is back.
According to CBSSports’ Bruce Feldman, Ambles has signed with Houston and will arrive on campus this summer. Houston confirmed the addition a short time later. The Cougars are coming off a disappointing 5-7 season under second-year coach Tony Levine.
Ambles will be able to play immediately and have two years of eligibility remaining. His addition, when paired with Deontay Greenberry, should give the Cougars one of the best receiving groups in the Big East.
One of the top receivers in the 2010 class, Ambles was considered a great talent who couldn’t overcome maturity issues. He played in the first four games for the Trojans as a freshman, but was later suspended due to academic issues. He then left the football team mid-year before returning to USC in 2011. However, he was declared academically ineligible before the start of the 2011 season and left the program a short time later.
