UConn football recruit Josh Dann was arrested for an alleged felony charge of theft and was banned from the team’s home games and on the road.
He was charged with stealing more than $500 from his recruiting agent and an undisclosed amount from his former girlfriend.
Dann’s attorney said that the athlete’s actions were an isolated incident.
A UConn spokesman said Monday that Dann would not be returning to the team.
Dans attorney, David Zaremba, said that his client was “not in a position to commit a crime” and would appeal the decision.
Danna’s attorney, Andrew Miller, said his client has never had an arrest record and is a “loyal student of the University of Connecticut.”
He said that Danna “will continue to do everything in his power to ensure that all UConn students and staff are safe.”
The football player is scheduled to be arraigned in Hartford on Feb. 17.
He is the third UConn recruit to be arrested since the start of the year, with the latest arrest coming on March 6.
A number of UConn players have been arrested and charged in the past few months, including quarterback Nick Becton and cornerback Zach Gage.
In March, the UConn men’s basketball team announced that sophomore guard Nick Anderson had been arrested for allegedly stealing $1,500 from an undercover UConn officer and was being held on $1 million bail.
The university said Anderson, who is from New York, would not play against the New York Knicks on Saturday.
