LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Jail records show that a second Texas Tech football player who was kicked off the team last month has been charged with burglary.

Records show 18-year-old Trace Keaton Ellison was arrested Wednesday on a charge of burglary of a habitation, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

Jail records don’t list attorney information for Ellison, who was released on $5,000 bond. Details on the allegations weren’t immediately released.

Twenty -year-old Robert James Castaneda was arrested Friday on the same charge. He was released after paying $5,000 bond.

Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury kicked Castaneda and Ellison off the team on May 5 for “failure to uphold student-athlete expectations.” Ellison, from Frisco Centennial, would have been a redshirt freshman tackle.

Sophomore linebacker Dakota Allen was also dismissed.
