Per a report from the Lawrence Journal World, Quiv Gonzalez has been dismissed from the Kansas football program for an unspecified violation of team rules.
Head coach David Beaty has yet to publicly comment on the dismissal.
Gonzalez came to KU as a transfer from Texas A&M. He was recruited to College Station by Beaty as a member of the class of 2013. Depending on your source, he was either a four or five-star recruit coming out of Cedar Hill HS in Texas.
After redshirting his transfer year of 2015, he caught 62 balls for 729 yards and 3 TD’s for Kansas in 2016. He was expected to be a major addition to special teams as well, and while h did average 21.5 yards per kickoff return with a touchdown (vs Ohio), he struggled fielding punts which led to several turnovers.
However, Kansas fans were excited about the prospect of teaming Gonzalez up with Steven Sims and Alabama transfer Daylon Charlot in 2017. Fortunately, Kansas appears to have some depth at wide receiver, even if it is untested. Spring game star Chase Harrell along with Ryan Schadler and Tyler Patrick will look to move up the depth chart. Players such as Bobby Hartzog and Jeremiah Booker saw some action last year as well, and will likely be given the opportunity for more playing time. Additionally, KU brought in a Juco WR in Kerr Johnson, who should be looking to contribute right away.
Fall camp begins in just two days, on August 2.
