Aidan Howard, a Gateway High School graduate and wide receiver at Robert Morris University, is suing his former school, the University of Virginia, in federal court, according to the Roanoke Times.
Howard, who was rated as a 3-star prospect by 247 coming out of high school, committed to Virginia in June 2015, before his senior year of high school. In February, he signed his National Letter of Intent.
When Howard arrived at Virginia this summer, he was the subject of abuse and hazing, according to his complaint. After an incident where Howard allegedly had his orbital bone broken after a staged fight with a teammate, he left the school and enrolled at Robert Morris.
Howard is listed on the Robert Morris roster, but has not played in a game. He claims he will be unable to play this season due to his injury.
He is seeking damages and is represented by Pittsburgh attorney James Zeszutek, according to the Times.
