Standout Redlands East Valley quarterback/shortstop Tyler Shreve pleaded not guilty to assault charges at his arraignment Thursday according to this article by Jesse Gill of the Daily Facts.
Shreve is being charged for his role in an incident February 25 where he allegedly attacked REV baseball coach James Cordes after an argument which resulted in his removal from the Wildcat baseball team. Shreve was arrested at the school and withdrew from the school several days later.
His pretrial hearing is set to take place on May 27 according to the article. The University of Utah, who Shreve signed a letter of intent to play football will on National Signing Day, is waiting for the results of the trial before ruling on his scholarship status.
It’s come to my attention that REV senior quarterback/shortstop Tyler Shreve has been arrested for assault after physically attacking Wildcats baseball coach James Cordes during practice Wednesday. Redlands Daily Facts reporter Jesse Gill has been on this story from the jump and reported that Shreve attacked Cordes after being dismissed from the team for an undisclosed reason.
Gill’s story can be read here. It’s an updated version of the one that was linked earlier and includes a statement from Shreve on the incident.
One of the subplots of the story is Shreve’s football scholarship to the University of Utah, which is sure to be in jeopardy after this incident. Gill contacted the university, which is in the process of reviewing the incident at this time.
Redlands East Valley quarterback Tyler Shreve switched his verbal commitment from Colorado State to Utah after taking an official visit to Utah according to the Salt Lake City Tribune. The story can be found on the Tribune’s blog, along with this quote by Shreve.
“The coaches seem like good guys, it’s a similar system to what we have at my high school and I enjoyed hanging out with the players,” he said. “I could see myself being there in Salt Lake no problem.”
Shreve committed to Colorado State in October but will join a surging Utes program fresh off consecutive Top 20 finishes. He’ll join Colony WR Kenneth Scott, Riverside North WR Dres Anderson and Norco athlete Joseph Smith as members of this Utah recruiting class.
