Jeremy Sprinkle Suspended From Belk Bowl for Shoplifting

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

The bowl games are upon us and many college athletes will get a wonderful opportunity to showcase their talents. One football player in particular, that goes by the name Jeremy Sprinkle, will not be able to play in the Belk Bowl matchup against the Virginia Tech Hokies. The Arkansas tight end was accused of shoplifting in the Charlotte area. 

The rest of his teammates were shopping around as part of the bowl game's perks. Each player can spend up to $450. Below is a list of items that Sprinkle stole:

His coach Bret Bielema issued a statement:

"Jeremy's suspension has been known by our staff and players for several days so we've had a chance to prepare our game plan accordingly. Throughout his career and this season as a graduate student-athlete, Jeremy has displayed numerous times the qualities we want to represent our program. We have standards within our family that must be upheld on a daily basis and unfortunately he failed to do that in the last week. Jeremy's suspension isn't drug, alcohol or violence related but one that will cause him to miss his final game as a Razorback."

Sprinkle will have a lot of explaining to do over the next few days. He has a lot of talent and is normally a respectable guy, but this event could hurt his chances of being drafted to the NFL in 2017. The 22-year-old will have to prove that he is not a character risk.
