Everett Withers announced that four members of the Bobcat team had been dismissed due to violations of team rules. Wide receiver Thurman Morbley, safety Quinn Tiggs, cornerback Jordan Eastling and running back Tyler Tutt are the four Bobcats in question, Withers didn't go into specifics of the violations.
The loss of Morbley hurts, a sophomore and explosive athlete finished second among Bobcat receivers last year with 400 yards and 36 receptions. This season his playing time was limited to four games this season due to issues including suspension.
Tutt, a redshirt freshman, tore his ACL before the season and never saw the field.
Tiggs and Eastling's departure diminish an already thin secondary. Withers continues to face number issues as he continues to try and rebuild the Bobcat program.
