Two Jackson State University football players who previously played for Greenwood High School have been charged with robbery and suspended from their team.
Jail records obtained by news outlets show that 20-year-old junior Jakaiszer Glass of Holcomb and 21-year-old sophomore Carl Jones of Greenwood, both linebackers, were arrested Tuesday by campus police.
Details of their charges haven’t been released, but a university spokesman stated that both had been indefinitely suspended pending the outcome of their cases.
WAPT-TV reports that attorney Carlos Moore of Grenada, who is representing Glass, said he plans to “vigorously fight the charge.” Jones’ attorney hasn’t commented.
Glass, a member of the GHS class of 2017, was named second-team all-region in 2015 and first-team in 2016 and also played basketball.
He played at Copiah-Lincoln Community College before enrolling at Jackson State.
