(June 23, 2014) Baylor sophomore wide receiver Robbie Rhodes is no longer with the football team, a team official told News 10 sports Monday night.

Rhodes' father also confirmed to ESPN that his son was dismissed from the program.

Rhodes was expected to have an increased role in Baylor's offense this season after catching just 10 passes as a freshman in 2013.

Rhodes' father, Reggie, told ESPN that his son made another mistake and was told Monday morning he was no longer a member of the program.

Reggie Rhodes would not disclose what the most recent incident involved.

Rhodes was arrested in May for possession of marijuana and tampering with evidence. He was not charged.

The McLennan Country District Attorney's office decided not to pursue charges after evidence showed the marijuana found in Rhode's car didn't belong to the sophomore.

Rhodes was pulled over on May 2 after failing to signal a lane change.
When the officer approached the car he smelled marijuana and then found a small bag of marijuana under the front seat.

The officer claimed Rhodes attempted to hide the marijuana, resulting in the tampering charge.

But Sibley presented the District Attorney with information showing that Rhodes had passed multiple drug tests, administered by Baylor, during the past six months. That included a negative test just days before the arrest.

Rhodes also tested negative for drug usage after his arrest.

Rhodes was expected to be one of Baylor's top wide receivers this season
