Wolverines dismiss former three-star WR

Csont’e York

Sophomore wide receiver Csont’e York is no longer a member of the Michigan Wolverines.

Michigan head coach Brady Hoke announced the team’s decision via a statement Monday.

“Representing the University of Michigan is a privilege and while second chances are certainly deserved, sometimes it’s better for everyone if that happens somewhere else,” Hoke said in a statement. “Overall, I have been proud of how responsible our team has been this offseason and how hard they’ve worked to prepare for the season.”

York was indefinitely suspended by the program two weeks ago when the school learned he was being investigated for three counts of assault. The Ann Arbor Police eventually released a video clearly showing York sucker punching the unnamed victim.

As a three-star recruit in the 2013 class, York was expected to compete for playing time in Michigan’s wide receiver rotation as a sophomore. Instead, he’ll have to find a new home to play football.

York originally chose the Wolverines over the Bowling Green Falcons, Cincinnati Bearcats, Illinois Fighting Illini, Syracuse Orange and Toledo Rockets.

    So when are you posting on the Braxton Miller injury? Just shocking!

    He would have been better off raping someone (allegedly). At scUM they cover it up for you until your eligibility is up. Just ask their last kicker.

    Last kicker went to jail for that? Charged? Just wondering……

    I’m sure an $EC team will take him. They gladly accept criminals and dirtbags.

    I doubt they’re covering up anything for a kicker. A QB maybe, but not a kicker.

    It’s a pretty easy story to look up. There’s this thing called the internet that houses lots of information.

    I saw the video of a sucker punch he delivered – such a cowardly act on his part, and really, a felonious act. My respect for the Head coach, and the University for their decision is boundless. Now – if only the other schools in every division would ban this punk from playing any football at all from hereon, perhaps other would-be athletes would learn a valuable life lesson.

    Shame on any school that signs this “student athlete.”
