CHEYENNE – Antonio Hull and Allen Smith III are no longer part of the University of Wyoming football team, the school announced late Friday morning.
Hull left the program for personal reasons, the release said. The senior from Diamond Bar, California, missed the Cowboys first three games so he could return home to attend to what coach Craig Bohl described as a personal matter. He returned to Laramie on Sept. 17.
Hull was arrested Sept. 25 for failing to pay fines after being cited for driving with a canceled license. He was not on the sidelines for the Cowboys’ 53-17 victory over UNLV on Sept. 28.
After the game, Bohl declined comment about Hull’s status with the team.
The 5-foot-10, 191-pound cornerback played in 39 career games at UW, recording 156 tackles (104 solo), five interceptions and 24 pass breakups. Hull made 32 career starts.
Smith – a true freshman corner from Culver City, California – was dismissed from the program, according to UW’s release. Smith was arrested Sept. 20 and charged with two counts of aggravated assault and battery after allegedly pointing a gun at the head of two people and pulling the trigger multiple times.
Smith contends the weapon was an airsoft pellet gun, his lawyer, Jason Tangeman, told the Casper Star-Tribune. Smith has a preliminary hearing in that case scheduled for Oct. 15 in Albany County Circuit Court.
Smith’s lone appearance in a Cowboys uniform came during a 23-14 win Sept. 7 at Texas State.
