Pitt dismisses arrested four-star QB

Tra'Von Chapman

Suspended indefinitely since an off-campus incident in April, Tra’Von Chapman has seen his time as a Pittsburgh Panther come to an end.

Citing a source close to the player, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review is reporting that Chapman has been dismissed from the football program.  The quarterback was informed of the decision by head coach Paul Chryst Thursday.

The school subsequently confirmed Chapman’s been dismissed.

Following that April incident involving an ex-girlfriend, Chapman was charged with assault, a first-degree misdemeanor, and one count of unlawful restraint.  He ultimately pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of assault, but still served three days in a jail.

The 6-2, 200-pound Chapman was a four-star member of Pitt’s 2013 recruiting class, rated as the No. 12 dual-threat quarterback in the country.  He was an early enrollee and participated in spring practice.

    Good. Make an example of players that commit stupid crimes like this guy has. Maybe then, maybe, other players will notice and act like reasonable and rationale adults who also have a free ride for college.

    He’ll just go somewhere else and be treated like a king.

    Any incident involving violence against a woman should be met with an immediate suspension at the least. It’s an act of abject cowardice. Playing football, or any sport, is a privilege. Players have a right to due process, not to playing football.

    Hopefully the coach found out exactly what happened. Hopefully the kid finds another school to go to, maybe a JC?

    He’d fit in great with Urban Meyer at an Ohio state university.

    He would fit in great at Michigan University.
