Middle Tennessee State wide receiver charged with rape in 2018 incident, official says

A Middle Tennessee State University wide receiver was charged with two counts of rape Tuesday stemming from a September 2018 incident in Tennessee, an official said.

Zeke Cobb, 21, was suspended from the program indefinitely after the charges were announced. Murfreesboro police spokesman Larry Flowers said Cobb was served a sealed indictment and didn’t have any additional details in the case.

Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders coach Rick Stockstill said in a statement that Cobb would be suspended “as we allow the legal process to move forward.”

"It is very disappointing, and if substantiated, such actions do not represent or reflect the standards we have worked extremely hard to develop for our program," he added.
