KU LB Duckworth booked over the weekend in connection with February arrest


The name Kendall Nyear Duckworth appeared on a booking report at the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office over the weekend, but not because of any new criminal activity.

The former KU walk-on with the Kansas football program was arrested back in February as one of two suspects in the robbery of another KU student.

Former KU receiver Eric Rivers was immediately dismissed from the program by KU coach David Beaty, who, at the time, said Duckworth, 19, was “suspended from all team activities.”

Duckworth, a 6-foot-1, 210-pound linebacker from Naples, Fla., was still listed on KU’s official roster Monday night.

According to a KU official, Duckworth’s inclusion on Monday’s booking report from his arrest over the weekend was required in order to file paperwork and provide Duckworth with a court date.

The weekend booking report listed the address of the Douglas County Jail as the place of arrest and indicated that Duckworth was arrested by “self.”
