More bad news for Derrius Guice.
According to the USA Today, two former LSU students say the former LSU running back Derrius Guice raped them just months apart in 2016, when Guice was a rising star freshman on the LSU football team.
At the conclusion of his collegiate career, Guice finished No. 5 on the Tigers’ career rushing list and was expected to be a first-round pick in the 2018 Draft. However, he fell to the end of the second round amid concerns of his maturity and accountability. Injuries have plagued his short professional career, and Washington cut him on Aug. 7 following his arrest the same day in Virginia on multiple domestic violence charges, in a separate matter.
In a statement, Guice’s attorney Peter D. Greenspun denied all of the allegations and questioned the timing of the story’s release.
“At no time were allegations of physical or sexual assault brought against Derrius during his years as a student athlete at LSU, to bring up such assertions only after the Virginia charges were initiated certainly calls into question the credibility, nature and timing of what is being alleged years later.
