Tight End Brent Wilkerson Dismissed From Penn State Football Program
After being suspended indefinitely back in March, senior tight end Brent Wilkerson was dismissed from the football program on Wednesday, according to a statement from the team, per 247 Sports.
“We appreciate Brent’s contributions to the program and wish him success in the future,” the statement said.
The suspension in March stemmed from charges of indecent assault and harassment during an incident that occurred on February 13. An affidavit of probable cause originally reported by the Centre Daily Times stated that Wilkerson allegedly invited himself into a woman’s apartment on Waumpelani Drive.
Wilkerson then, allegedly, woke the woman up after around 45 minutes wearing nothing but a shirt and underwear. He then proceeded to grab the woman’s neck and kiss her body, attempted to remove her clothes, and masturbated in front of her all despite requests to stop.
According to the Centre Daily Times, Wilkerson’s formal arraignment and preliminary hearing were waived last week.
