Big news came out of Bowling Green on Wednesday. In a statement issued by head coach Mike Jinks to the media, wide receiver Datrin Guyton was kicked off the team for his charged crime over the weekend.

“Regardless of the outcome of the current investigation, he has broken the terms of the zero-tolerance policy he was already under based on a violation of team rules. From a university standpoint,” Jinks added, “he may also be held accountable under the terms of the student code of conduct.”
This is the response of Guyton being charged with robbery on Saturday. Guyton started with an indefinite suspension when the news broke, then was removed from the team days later.
Guyton was poised to have a big senior season, too. Guyton started his career off at Oregon State where he caught 14 passes. From there, he went the junior college route (Copiah-Lincoln C.C.) and wound up in BG as a part of the 2017 signing class. In his first year with the Mid-American conference team: 11 games, five starts, 31 receptions, 585 yards and two touchdowns. In games against South Dakota and Eastern Michigan, Guyton caught five passes in each with 158 and 112 receiving yards, respectively.
