The football future of Godby High's star quarterback AJ Graham is in jeopardy... A future that had been locked in since February 4th of this year on National Signing Day..
But his dream season, where he led the Cougars to the State Title game and accounted for more than 44-hundred yards and 48 combined touchdowns, is now facing a grim reality... The 6-foot-4 quarterback and Gene Cox Player Award winner remains in jail after being arrested and charged for robbery with a firearm...
And that not only affects Graham, but also Marshall University who had their hopes high on the rivals.com 27th ranked best quarterback in the 2009 class. He was slated to be one of 6 total quarterbacks on the Thundering Herd Roster this Fall.
Here's what Marshall Head football coach Mark Snyder said today in a brief statement.. "Due to the situation, I have decided to release A.J. from his scholarship."
It should be noted that the Athletics Office at Marshall said that the scholarship could still be reinstated to Graham should the charges get dropped.
