Kansas Player Cited With Hit and Run


In a summer that has had a lot of players getting into trouble, you can add a future freshman to this list. According to KUSports.com, Kansas’ Brannen Greene, the 47th ranked player in the 2013 recruiting class according to ESPN, has been cited for a hit and run accident on July 13.

There we no injuries to anybody, only damage to a car. It seems that a 2002 Chevrolet Blazer belonging to another person but driven by Greene was driven into a 1997 Mercury Grand Maquis and extensively damaged the back of the vehicle. While it was not originally determined who was driving the car, police later determined that Greene was behind the wheel at the time of the accident.

Along with the hit and run citation, he was also charged with leaving the scene of an accident. Greene’s case will be seen in Municpal court on august 7th.

Kansas officials have released a statement saying that they have seen the news and will handle the case internally. That really isn’t surprising as it has been the memo from all universities whenever one of their athletes get in trouble. Thankfully, no one was injured in Greene’s accident and hopefully he learns to handle responsibility instead of avoiding next time he gets in a situation like this.
