Rutgers wide receiver Dacoven Bailey has been removed from the team’s roster following a sexual assault charge, according to a report from KXII.
Bailey was one of four men accused of raping a 15-year-old girl at a party in Texas last summer, according to the report. A Rutgers spokesperson told KXII that Bailey was kicked off the team in January after he was arrested in December.
Bailey, from Point Pilot, Texas, is reportedly out of jail on $20,000 bond.
“I didn’t raise my son to be that way,” Bailey’s mother, Shileta Bailey told KXII. “I didn’t raise him to do those things but everybody gets caught up in certain situations.”
Bailey spent the last two seasons on Rutgers’ roster. He played in 23 games in those two years, and he caught 9 passes for 122 yards and 1 touchdown in the 2017 campaign. A 2-star recruit in the 2016 class, Bailey was considered the No. 362 receiver in the country during that recruiting cycle.
