Jarboe finds a new home in Alabama

/> Jarboe had been arrested in the spring for bringing a stolen gun to his Georgia high school campus. He pleaded guilty on two felony gun counts that a judge reduced to misdemeanors under Georgia's First Offender's Act, allowing Jarboe to initially keep his scholarship under OU policy.

"We outlined for Josh the expectations we had for him when he arrived and, unfortunately, those expectations have not been met,” Stoops said then. "Josh needs to learn from this experience. We hope he can move forward in a positive manner.”

Jarboe will have a familiar face in Troy. Fellow freshman wide receiver Chip Reeves is also from Georgia's DeKalb County.

Reeves, who chose to go to Troy over Auburn, Tennessee and Virginia Tech, should team with Jarboe to give the Trojans a potent, young wide receiving duo for the next few seasons.
