LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A University of Kentucky football player who was cleared of a rape charge by a grand jury last year will return to the school as a member of an opposing team.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports (https://bit.ly/2gqEztx ) defensive end Lloyd Tubman is expected to play Saturday for Austin Peay State University against Kentucky. Tubman was suspended from the team in 2014 after he was arrested and charged with rape. A grand jury in 2015 cleared him of criminal charges.

Victim attorney Elizabeth Howell said she was deeply disappointed her client, who no longer attends the university, was not notified Tubman would be back on campus.

A Kentucky spokesman declined to comment. An Austin Peay spokesman said officials discussed the matter with UK and Tubman was allowed to be on campus.
