Two Boise State football players have been expelled from the school -- and another player has been suspended for a year -- in the wake of sexual assault allegations against them.
The school launched an investigation after the alleged victim claimed she was forced into performing oral sex on all three players during incidents last year, this according to the Idaho Statesman.
Redshirt freshman linebacker Marquis Hendrix and redshirt freshman corner Donzale Roddie were expelled. Redshirt freshman safety Darreon Jackson has been suspended.
The woman reportedly told investigators the men essentially trapped her (blocking doors) on different occasions, and intimidated her into performing oral sex.
All three men have denied wrongdoing -- with Jackson saying, "nobody forced her to do anything.”
BSU issued a statement saying, "Boise State is committed to thorough and fair investigations into all allegations of sexual misconduct -- and to holding parties accountable when they are found to be responsible for violating the student code of conduct."
So far, no criminal charges have been brought against any of the players.
A rep for the Boise PD tells us, "The Boise Police department has not received a report concerning Marquis Hendrix, Donzale Roddie and Darreon Jackson and there is no current investigation."
