LOGAN, Utah (AP) - A former Utah State University football player was charged Friday with two new counts of rape - bringing his total number of alleged victims to seven.

Torrey Green was previously charged in early October with four counts of rape as well as aggravated kidnapping and forcible sexual abuse after the Cache County Attorney’s Office spent several months re-reviewing allegations that multiple women made against Green during his time at Utah State.

After the initial charges were filed, six new complaints came in to prosecutors, District Attorney James Swink said in a news release.

Two other cases are still under investigation. No charges were filed with the last two due to insufficient evidence, Swink said.

The charges stem from allegations made from 2013 through this year. The two new alleged rapes occurred in October 2014 and August 2015, court documents show.

Green’s attorney, Skye Lazaro, didn’t immediately return a request for comment. Green, 23, has denied the previous allegations.

Green, a linebacker, was cut by the Atlanta Falcons in August after the sexual assault allegations emerged.

He was arrested in his home state of California in October and is now in a Utah jail. He’s due back in court on Dec. 13 in Logan.
