Baylor removes four-star freshman J.W. Ketchum from roster

This week J.W. Ketchum, a dual-threat quarterback and a four-star recruit out of high school, has been removed from the Baylor roster due to a violation of team rules.

In mid-August, Ketchum was arrested and placed in jail for possession of marijuana.

Could it be that he got caught smoking pot, again? We don’t know.

Baylor head coach, Art Briles, has not announced which rules Ketchum violated that got him kicked off the roster. But even though Ketchum isn’t playing this season and is not participating in practices, according to The Waco Tribune, he is still continuing to train with Baylor strength and conditioning coaches. Ketchum, who committed to Baylor last October, will also be allowed to remain on scholarship and he will be qualified to use a redshirt year of eligibility this fall.

For now, looks like Ketchum will be focusing more on his studies than football.
