NORMAN — Josh Jarboe is still answering questions about the infamous, obscenity-laced rap video that led to his dismissal from the Oklahoma football team nearly five years ago.
This New York Times story details Jarboe’s NFL chances now that his college career is over.
Jarboe was one of the Sooners’ top prospects in their 2008 recruiting class. He recorded more than 1,200 receiving yards as a senior at Georgia’s Cedar Grove High School, and picked OU over offers from Florida, Georgia and LSU.
But in March 2008, Jarboe was arrested and charged with possession of a stolen gun, and carrying a gun onto school property, both felonies. He pled guilty and was expelled from school, but Oklahoma gave him another chance after he finished his graduation requirements online.
After he arrived at OU, though, a video of Jarboe rapping about guns and violence surfaced on YouTube. OU coach Bob Stoops initially expressed support for Jarboe, but dismissed him from the team a day later.
