LUBBOCK (AP) – Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville says linebacker Daniel Cobb has been cleared of a felony burglary charge stemming from his arrest in August.
Cobb, who started practicing with the 18th-ranked Red Raiders on Sunday night, was expected to play against TCU on Saturday.
The junior was arrested Aug. 19 and charged with burglary of a habitation, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison. A police report showed that an officer responding to the burglary call found evidence of forced entry into an apartment and Cobb assaulting the occupant.
Tuberville said Cobb committed “no wrongdoing whatsoever.” Calls to the Lubbock County district attorney’s office were not returned Monday.
Cobb started seven games last season and made 70 tackles, third best on the team.
