Former Baylor wide receiver Robbie Rhodes announced that he would be transferring to Bowling Green.
Rhodes was dismissed from the Baylor football program in June due to multiple incidents involving drugs and will have to sit out the 2014-2015 season. However, he will have three years of eligibility remaining.
He was arrested in May on marijuana possession charges, but the chargers were later dropped.
Rhodes’ father, Reggie, spoke to ESPN.com about his son’s decision to transfer to Bowling Green and what he expects head coach Dino Baber’s plans to utilize his son’s talents. Baber was Baylor’s wide receiver’s coach from 2008-2011.
“Coach Babers talked to him and laid down everything that would be good for him,” Robbie’s father, Reggie Rhodes, told ESPN.com. “The offense fits him, so there’s no transitioning to a new offense; everything is exactly the same. He wanted to go somewhere where he can go in and make an impact and be the No. 1 receiver.”
Rhodes had 10 receptions for 157 yards during his freshman season.
