Frosh All-American booted by Boise

Colorado St Boise St Football AP

Unfortunately for Sam Ukwuachu, following up on a sensational redshirt freshman season, at least at Boise State, won’t be on the agenda.

The Broncos announced Tuesday afternoon that the talented young defensive lineman has been dismissed from the football program.  The garden variety (violation of unspecified team rules” was the reason given by the school.

Ukwuachu did not play in the spring game due to what head coach Chris Petersen described as “some personal things he’s taking care of.”

In 2012, Ukwuachu played in all 13 games in his second season at the school, starting the final 12 games of the year.  After being credited with seven tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks — each total being third on the team — he was named a Freshman All-American by the Football Writers Association of America.

In addition to the news of Ukwuachu’s dismissal, backup quarterback Jimmy Laughrea has decided to leave the team.  A three-star member of BSU’s 2011 recruiting class, Laughrea did not see any game action as a redshirt freshman last season.

    Wow, he must have done something horrible to get kicked out of Boise. They recruit criminals and morons like it’s going out of style. Bravo for the move Boise JC.

    That’s kinda a low blow scoocha and just not a true statement. They recruit three star kids or less and do an awesome job getting those types of players. They all have qualified through the ncaa just like everyone else.

    In fact, Boise got hammered for getting caught having incoming freshmen sleep on the floors and couches of there older teammates before they even started classes. If your a turd, Chris Petersen will get rid of you, that’s a proven fact.

    Titus Young couldn’t agree more.

    Titus Young is a definite a turd, but hasn’t he been out of College for 3 or 4 years now? I don’t know his entire history while at Boise, but I don’t recall ever hearing about him being in any trouble both on or off the field. It appears once this guy started getting paid, then the real guy came out. To bad for him.

    Anyway, you can’t blame Coach Petersen for that one. Besides if your looking, ever school has someone that has moved on and turns out to be something other then what they appeared to be in College.

    Just look how that McClain kid from Bama has been acting. I don’t recall hearing about him having any issues while in school either. But he now can’t keep his ass out of jail. What’s up with that guy. What a waist of talent, the both of them are.
