Texas A&M dismisses WR charged with indecent exposure, report says

Kirk Merritt claimed he had jock itch when he exposed himself to two different female tutors last year.

Kirk Merritt's playing days with Texas A&M are over.

The wide receiver was charged with two counts of indecent exposure after he allegedly exposed himself to two female tutors within the span of 24 hours in October.

At first he was suspended indefinitely, but The Eagle reported Wednesday Merritt has been dismissed from the team. His name is no longer on the spring practice roster.

On March 24, Merritt entered a not guilty plea to both charges, saying he had a bad case of jock itch, which is why he exposed himself.

"While Kirk is very embarrassed about this situation, and has apologized to the two tutors that he offended, he did not intend to gratify anyone by exposing himself," Merritt's attorney, Rick Davis, said earlier this month.

Merritt, 20, transferred to Texas A&M from Oregon in July for his sophomore year. According to NCAA transfer rules, Merritt had to sit out last season, but was expected to take on a large role with the Aggies this year.
