Josh Jarboe has struck out a second time.
Troy coach Larry Blakeney said Friday that he had kicked Jarboe off the team and that the sophomore receiver was in the process of transferring to Northeast Mississippi Community College.
"We worked hard to give him every opportunity," Blakeney told the Dothan Eagle. "It just didn’t work out. We tried to help him go somewhere that he could get another shot."
Jarboe has been cited twice by Troy police, once in Jan. 2009 for misdemeanor harassment and once earlier this year for disorderly conduct.
"It was certainly a lot of buildup," Blakeney said. "There were a couple of incidents since camp started that were the straws that broke the camel's back.“
Blakeney added: "I feel like I've failed him, but we've got to move on."
Jarboe is no stranger to controversy. He was one of the nation's top recruits as a senior at Cedar Grove High in Ellenwood, Ga., and signed with Oklahoma in February 2008 (video of Oklahoma announcement above).
A month later, he was charged with receiving stolen property and having a weapon on school property, both felonies. Officials expelled him from school and he completed his high school degree online.
In May 2008, Jarboe reached a plea deal that reduced the charges to misdemeanors, and Oklahoma's Bob Stoops welcomed him to the team.
Jarboe didn't last long in Norman. Two days before fall camp in August, a profanity-laced video (above) in which the receiver rapped about guns and shooting people surfaced on YouTube. Stoops initially said he would not kick Jarboe off the team, but as the hits racked up on YouTube, so did the pressure and Stoops sent Jarboe packing.
Jarboe ended up at Troy later that month, but had to sit out the 2008 season because of NCAA transfer rules.
Jarboe caught 15 passes for 248 yards and a touchdown last season. His most memorable reception (above) came against Arkansas, when officials incorrectly ruled that he landed inbounds after a catch.
