Two members of the Nebraska football program who were suspended indefinitely in August are reportedly facing multi-year bans, according to a report by ESPN.
According to ESPN’s Paula Lavigne, the two players are facing a 2.5-year ban for violating the school’s sexual misconduct policies. Lavigne identified the players as WR Andre Hunt and TE Katerian LeGrone.
Both players were suspended for a full season before the start of the 2019 campaign for initially unknown reasons.
Per the report, the evidence stems from an alleged incident that took place at their off-campus apartment on August 25.
The report issued Wednesday states that the “greater weight of the evidence” supported that the two men “engaged in sexual assault and sexual harassment, in violation of university sexual misconduct policies” in an Aug. 25 incident at their off-campus apartment.
Hunt and LeGrone were both three-star prospects in the Class of 2018. Hunt has yet to record a touch for the Huskers while LeGrone had one reception as a freshman.
