Morris Joseph Jr. Leaving UTSA

UTSA defensive tackle Morris Joseph Jr. announced via Twitter that he's leaving the Roadrunner program. Joseph played his prep ball at Golden Triangle powerhouse West Orange-Stark and signed with UTSA in 2017 after a stellar career with the Mustangs.

24/7 rated Joseph a three-star recruit. He participated in one game last year for the 'Runners, against Southern. He made six stops and half a sack. 

Off the field, things were less than stellar. As a senior Joseph, former Alabama recruit Deionte Thompson, and Daletredricc Wolfford, all face a second-degree felony charge of aggravated assault, causing serious bodily injury after an incident involving eighteen-year-old Noah Frillou at Crystal Beach in March of 2017. 

Joseph spent last season playing under conditions of bond, including drug testing. According to the District Clerk's website, the case is still pending as the parties await an offer from the District Attorney. 

UTSA's line depth probably squeezed Joseph out of playing time, though the Roadrunners listed him on the post-spring two-deep, behind King Newton and Jaylon Haynes. Technically that's a three-deep.
