MIAMI (AP) — Miami has dismissed second-year freshman safety Avantae Williams from the football program after his arrest on battery charges. The school issued a statement Thursday on Williams’ dismissal, which came hours after his suspension from team activities. Williams was arrested Wednesday night on three counts of aggravated battery of a pregnant victim, according to Miami-Dade County arrest records. According to a police report obtained by The Miami Herald, Williams’ arrest followed an argument with his child’s mother, who is also pregnant with his baby. Williams ranked as the No. 1 safety in the 2020 recruiting class but didn’t play last season.
