Lee's Summit star athlete could end up unsigned to any college by February because of arrest

LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. - At least one coach is still interested in Jamone Boyd even after his arrest, but it will more than likely leave him unsigned by February's National Signing Day.

The star athlete at Lee's Summit West High School was charged with resisting arrest and possession of marijuana on Monday.

The one concern ESPN'S Jeremy Crabtree is hearing over and over is not about the weed possession -- but rather Boyd resisting arrest and being tased.
 
"We'll see some schools walk away from him just because they don't want to assume that risk, because in the end, it's their jobs that are on the line, too," Crabtree said. 
 
Crabtree knows at least one coach is still interested, but Boyd's record off the field could more than likely leave him unsigned by February's National Signing Day.
 
"I've talked to one recruiter about his situation, and they're certainly not ready to call it off at this point because there is obviously still so many details that have yet to come out, and we need to let the legal process play itself out," he said.
 
Boyd was scheduled to visit Kansas State during this weekend's home game. There's been no word on whether the visit is still on.
 
41 Action News reached out to Boyd, but he has not yet responded.
