Michigan OL Graham Glasgow In Trouble Again

A year after being arrested for drunk driving, Michigan Wolverines offensive lineman Graham Glasgow has run into trouble again. Glasgow has violated his probation stemming from that drunk driving charge.

A Breathalyzer test given to Glasgow on Sunday (March 15) showed he was at a .086. Glasgow admitted to drinking and part of his probation was to not consume alcohol.

Glasgow was sentenced to 12 months probation on July 14 of last year as a result of his drunk driving arrest on March 15 of 2014. Part of the sentence included random drug and alcohol tests.

Glasgow was expected to battle with Patrick Kugler for the starting center spot vacated by Jack Miller who decided to leave the Michigan program. Kugler has seen action in only 1 game as a Wolverine.

Glasgow was suspended for the season opening game against Appalachian State in 2014. He subsequently started the next 11 games for the Wolverines. In 2013, Glasgow started all 13 games with nine starts coming at center and the other four starts coming at left guard.

It will be interesting to see how Jim Harbaugh handles this off the field distraction and the sudden offensive line issues that have come about in the last week.

Update: Jim Harbaugh has suspended Glasgow.

“We have been made aware of Graham’s probation violation and he has been suspended. Graham will be subject to punishment through the judicial system, the student-athlete alcohol policy and the Michigan football program.”

Arizona State Suspends JUCO Transfer Davon Durant

Potential starter Davon Durant has been suspended by Arizona State indefinitely. The suspension stems from multiple charges filed against Durant for an incident on March 8.

Durant has been charged with one count of aggravated assault and three counts of disorderly conduct according to this public record.

Doug Haller of the Arizona Republic provided the following description of what happened according to the police report:

“Tempe police say Durant was arrested March 7 when officers were called to the scene after witnesses reported a man had struck a woman while they sat in a black SUV.

Durant told an officer he was arguing with his girlfriend in the car. According to the report, Durant’s girlfriend told police that the linebacker hit her in the face once and grabbed her around her neck.

The responding officer reported that Durant’s girlfriend had visible injuries, including a bruise below her left eye and bruising around her neck that was consistent with finger marks.”

Arizona State head coach Todd Graham said, “If a guy gets arrested, they understand they’re going to be suspended. Our standards are the highest. They’re a lot higher than just about anybody around and there’s accountability for those standards. If you’re going to come forward and make the stance that we do when it comes to character and respect, obviously, that’s something that’s very, very important to us. But also we owe it to our guys to let the (legal) process play itself out.”

Durant enrolled early at Arizona State, but is not listed on the roster. Durant was expected to start at the Devilbacker position, which according to Durant would allow to play all over the field. Durant was a transfer from Butler Community College in El Dorado, Kansas. His absence has allowed Ismael Murphy-Richardson to get the first team reps. Murphy-Richardson redshirted in 2014.

There has been no comment from Mississippi State regarding the arrest of Jenkins. Jenkins is from Clarksdale, Mississippi and redshirted in 2014.

This is the third separate incident involving a Mississippi State Bulldog in the last week. Quarterback Dak Prescott was assaulted in Panama City Beach, Florida while on spring break. Fellow teammates Damian Williams and Torrey Dale were also assaulted.

Then came the news that wide receiver De’Runnya Wilson was arrested in Alabama on possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia on Friday night.

Mississippi State being spring practice on Wednesday with the hope that this spate of off the field instances are behind them.
