Father Of Baylor 4-Star Signee Calls Out Program For Not Releasing Son From Letter Of Intent

The father of one of the prized recruits in Baylor football's 2016 class is calling out the school for not releasing his son from his national letter of intent. 

JP Urquidez, a four-star offensive tackle, announced on Sunday that he would not be enrolling at Baylor after the Bears' fired Art Briles amid the program's sexual assault scandal. 

The 6-foot-5, 300-pound offensive lineman, who signed with the Bears in February, has yet to be released from his scholarship, though. His father, Julian Urquidez, posted a statement on Twitter this evening about his son's situation. 

Julian Urquidez says "we requested our release" but "no one is listening."

Here's his full statement. 

JP Urquidez is ranked the No. 21 OT in the class by 247Sports’ Composite Rankings. He committed to the Bears over Maryland, Texas and Texas A&M, among other programs.
