Reported by Peter Ariz, Suttles first signed with Nebraska as part of their 2013 class. A Tampa, Fla. native, Suttles was thrown off of team by head coach Bo Pelini after he was ticketed for misdemeanor assault.
According to courier-journal.com, a fight broke out during a party between Suttles and his Nebraska teammate, David Santos, in which Suttles allegedly broke a beer bottle over Santos’ head.
Shortly after, Pelini dismissed Suttles, along with teammate Thomas Brown in June.
Suttles was a highly touted defensive end coming out of high school and was expected to contend for ample playing time at linebacker for the Cornhuskers.
The 3-star prospect was rated the No. 24 WDE during the class of 2013 and the No. 77 prospect nationally (247Sports).
Due to transfer rules, Suttles will have to sit out a year before playing at Miami.
