Texas Tech freshman Bronson Boyd dismissed days after joining team

Texas Tech freshman wide receiver Bronson Boyd has been dismissed from the team just days after joining the program, the university confirmed Saturday.

Boyd was one of 12 newcomers who enrolled at Texas Tech early to participate in spring practice.

Boyd was a four-star prospect out of Arlington, Texas, and was the third-highest prospect in the Red Raiders' recruiting class.

A university spokesman declined to give a reason for Boyd's dismissal.
