Much maligned receiver Josh Jarboe has signed with Arkansas State.
Jarboe was booted from Oklahoma, couldn't stick at Troy and will now try to keep his nose clean with the Red Wolves.  He spent 2010 at community college so he should be eligible to play in 2011. Fri, Feb 11, 2011 10:00:00 PM

Former Oklahoma Sooner recruit/problem child wide receiver Josh Jarboe has been dismissed from the Troy program for a violation of team rules. Larry Blakeney tells The Dothan Eagle that freshman Jamel Johnson should see more playing time now that Jarboe has moved on. 

Not sure if there's another program that will take a shot on Mr. Jarboe.

Wide receiver Josh Jarboe “has had his best spring practice," and Chip Reeves “could be our best receiver if he does the right things and if he’s eligible,” Troy coach Larry Blakeney remarked.

Jarboe, if you recall, was a high profile recruit who was headed to Oklahoma before his Youtube rap career landed him in hot water. There appears to be no shortage of talent in the passing game for Troy, we just wonder how the offense will respond to the loss of offensive coordinator Neal Brown.

Troy has put a gag order on wide receiver Josh Jarboe, but that doesn't mean they don't think highly of the Oklahoma transfer. Quite the opposite.  "He has a great deal of God-given ability;" receivers coach Shayne Wasden said. "How hard he works at it will determine how good he will be, but he certainly has the tools."

Jarboe is a tough one to peg.  He has a ton of talent and he fits the big fish in a small pond theory.  Yet off-the-field issues have plagued him in the past and he has yet to play a down of college football.  He's certainly someone we could be talking about on the waiver wire early in the season.

Harassment charges against Troy's Josh Jarboe have been dropped and the much-maligned (but talented) wide receiver should be ready to go this fall.

Jarboe should make an immediate impact for the Trojans this season. Special thanks to Graham Watson from ESPN for looking into this for us.

Troy wide receiver and former Oklahoma recruit Josh Jarboe was arrested by Troy University police and charged with harassment.

Jarboe was dismissed from the Sooners this past fall after a bad rap was released showing him spout off about guns and such. Expected to play for Troy next year, Jarboe now has another issue with which to deal.

The NCAA has ruled that Troy freshman receiver (and Oklahoma transfer) Josh Jarboe cannot play this season.

Jarboe will have four seasons of eligibility remaining, as this year will serve as his "redshirt" year. Here's hoping he avoids the rap videos.
