Florida Loses Recruit DB Chris Steele After Forcing Him To Live With Alleged Sexual Assaulter/Team

Florida's five-star recruit, freshman DB Chris Steele, has entered the transfer portal after requesting to switch roommates and being denied. Steele was rooming with QB Jalon Jones who is accused of two sexual assaults thirty-minutes apart...

Per GatorSports.com...
quote:

The former five-star recruit has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal. Steele met with UF coach Dan Mullen on Wednesday night and informed him, a source close to the situation told The Sun.

The decision stems from a request Steele made to the staff during his first month on campus, the source said. He asked to be moved to a different dorm because he was uncomfortable rooming with quarterback Jalon Jones, his classmate.

The staff did not plan to move Steele until the summer, which upset Steele and his parents, according to the source.

Then two female students accused Jones of sexual assault in the players’ dorm rooms on April 6. That prompted Steele to seek a transfer.

I think it's telling that he wanted to be transferred to another room before there even were any allegations.

Scientologist coaches don't have great moral constructs. We see it time after time.

Maybe Mullen would let Tae Proven room with Jalon Jones.

Does LSU have a shot at this fellow?

Everyone believes what they want to believe. We almost never hear the other side of the story in these situations. There are a lot of rumors about the real reason he is leaving.

Mullen's mega-blunders. 1) Tone-deaf failure to act on an important request. 2) Subsequent loss of a 5-Star DB

Agree. Sounds like he did not want to be put in compromising position in case that roommate brought another female back there and something happen in there room. Then he could be brought into a criminal investigation or accused of something.

We’ll take him. He’ll probably be assaulted by Bama every November, though.
