Boise State has issued a statement regarding what it knew about former Boise State football player Sam Ukwuachu before he was dismissed from the football team in 2013. He was convicted of sexual assault last week in Texas. He had transferred to Baylor.

Ukwuachu was dismissed from the team in May of 2013. He had previously been absent for the Spring Game and then returned to the program. He was a Freshman All-American defensive end in 2012.

The sexual assault in Texas occurred in October 2013. Ukwuachu never played for Baylor but was expected to return to the team this fall if he wasnt convicted.

At trial, a former girlfriend from Ukwuachus time in Boise testified that he had beaten her.

Ukwuachu denied the allegation at trial but testified that he was depressed and suicidal, was hospitalized for three days and later punched a window.
