Baylor true sophomore WR Robbie Rhodes has been dismissed from the program, according to ESPN's David Smoak.
"Baylor head coach Art Briles confirmed to me Robbie Rhodes is no longer with the football program, "we've parted ways for undisclosed reasons," Smoak tweeted. Unfortunately for the Bears, Rhodes was going to play a big part in college football's No. 1 scoring offense. Rhodes was arrested last month on marijuana possession and tampering with physical evidence. It's been reported that he was kicked off the team because he failed his second drug test, but that has been unconfirmed. Rhodes caught 10 passes for 157 yards as a true freshman last year, and was expected to have a break out year in 2014. Jun 24 - 8:26 AM

The McLennan County District Attorney’s Office decided not to pursue misdemeanor marijuana possession charges against Baylor true sophomore WR Robbie Rhodes.

Rhodes was arrested last month on marijuana possession and tampering with physical evidence. The player's attorney used Baylor's drug-testing policy to argue that his client should be given leniency, according to the Waco Tribune: "Waco attorney Jonathan Sibley said Baylor has been drug-testing Rhodes for about seven months and he never tested positive for drug use. Sibley said he showed those test results to the DA’s office, including a test administered two days before Rhodes was arrested, and convinced them he was not guilty. Rhodes also tested negative after his arrest, Sibley said." Rhodes was a four-star recruit in 2013 and is expected to break out with Tevin Reese playing on Sundays this year.

The Waco Tribune reports WR Robbie Rhodes was arrested early Friday morning on charges of marijuana possession and tampering with physical evidence.

It was also discovered that Rhodes had a previously unreported citation for drug paraphernalia possession. Bears HC Art Briles said he would address the situation at some point in the future. Rhodes caught 10 passes for 157 yards as a true freshman last year, but he's expected to break out in 2014. He was ranked as the No. 8 wide receiver in the nation coming out of high school in 2013.

Baylor coach Art Briles said true freshman WR Robbie Rhodes could be a "breakout player."

Presumably he means for this upcoming season, which is intriguing news for Big 12-only fantasy owners. Rhodes, a four-star recruit from Fort Worth, "may be one of the bigger sleepers in this class," according to ESPN.com's scouting report. Briles fended off most of the nation to sign this silky-smooth route runner. "Hope he can be an impactful player," Briles said. "We feel like he has the capability to be a breakout player."
