texas longhorn rape allegations

Two Texas Longhorns football players will not play in the Alamo Bowl after they were suspended amid allegations of rape.

No charges have been filed, and the players’ names were not released by police or coach Mack Brown.

However, Hookem.com, without citing the rape allegations, names two players suspended for breaking team rules: Jordan Hicks and Case McCoy.

Meanwhile, Mike Barnes, sports director at KVUE Austin, shared the police report’s description of the unnamed men:

Here are the player profiles for Hicks and McCoy, via MattBrown-TexasFootball.com:



Case McCoy is the brother of 2009 NCAA quarterback of the year and current Cleveland Browns second-string QB, Colt McCoy. Colt McCoy is an alumnus of Texas.

Case is known for his religious devotion, often relayed via Twitter:

Police report the alleged victim is a 21-year-old white female who says she invited two Longhorns players back to her room at the Holiday Inn Riverwalk in San Antonio after a night of nightclub drinking. Cops responded to her room at 2:48 a.m. Friday and found her with a bruised right knee and left biceps.

According to KENS5:

Officers were called … to the Holiday Inn Riverwalk … where a 21-year-old woman was claiming she had just been raped by two UT football players. The woman told officers she had several alcoholic drinks with the men before they went to the hotel bar at the Holiday Inn. She told officers she then invited both men back to her hotel room, where the alleged sexual assault occurred. Police said the woman was sobbing alongside a friend when they met with her. … According to the report, there was another woman asleep in a separate bed inside the hotel room when officers interviewed the alleged victim.

The alleged victim is said to be an acquaintance of one of the players. KFYO reports she’s a Texas Tech student.

Matthew Porter, a San Antonio police officer, told HornsNation’s Carter Strickland:

No arrests have been made. [The case] is still being currently investigated, there is no timetable for the investigation [to be handed over to the D.A's office.]

The Holiday Inn Riverwalk (A) is half a mile from the Marriott RiverCenter (B), where the Longhorns were staying:
