Wesley Chapel’s Isaiah Bolden, one of the top players in the Tampa Bay area, was dismissed from the team on Tuesday, Wildcats coach Tony Egan said.

Bolden, a four-star recruit who has already committed to Oregon, said there was an incident Tuesday that led to his dismissmal. Egan said it was for “undisclosed reasons.”

After transferring from Bartram Trail last year, Bolden helped Wesley Chapel go 7-2 and nearly make the playoffs.

This season, Bolden was used in a variety of ways, but he made his biggest impact on defense and special teams. He returned an interception 90 yards for a touchdown and a punt 93 yards for a score. The Wildcats are 4-2 heading into Friday’s game against Ridgewood.

Bolden said his family is trying to talk to the coaching staff to see if the situation can be rectified.

“I really don’t know what’s going on right now,” Bolden said.

Any chance of returning would be up to the school’s administrators according to Egan.

“(Tuesday) at practice he was sent home and told he was off the team,” Egan said. “I don’t know if he’ll be able to return. I’ll have to talk more with him, his family and our administration.”
