The 2017 season hasn’t even officially begun and it’s already off to a bad start for Kansas. Senior wide receiver LaQuvionte Gonzalez has been kicked off the team for a violation of team rules, as first reported by the Lawrence Journal World on Sunday afternoon.
The program did not specify the nature of Gonzalez’s violation, and head coach David Beaty was not available for comment.
A native of Cedar Hill, Texas, Gonzalez originally signed with Texas A&M but followed Beaty to Lawrence after the former Texas A&M receivers coach took the KU job.
Gonzalez was the team’s second-leading receiver last season, hauling in 62 balls for 729 yards and three touchdowns. He caught eight passes for 131 yards against TCU, six for 106 and a touchdown versus Oklahoma State and five for 127 and a score opposite Kansas State.
Kansas reports for training camp on Monday; Beaty is expected to address the Gonzalez situation at his previously scheduled state of the team address on Tuesday.
