Former 5-star recruit Markeith Ambles signs with Houston

Monday April 8th, 2013

Former five-star wide receiver recruit Markeith Ambles signed with the University of Houston on Monday, reports 

Ambles began his college career at USC in 2010. He was suspended indefinitely by the team during his freshman season and declared academically ineligible for the 2011 season.

Ambles had a pretty good explanation for one of the reasons why he didn't last with the Trojans.

 "I partied too much," Ambles said in a 2012 interview. "At USC, there was always a party every night."

Ambles will be teamed up with Deontay Greenberry who had 47 receptions for 569 yards and three touchdowns for the Cougars last season


The 6-foot-3 Ambles, who played in 2012 in junior college at Arizona Western, will arrive at Houston this summer and will be eligible this fall. He will have two seasons of eligibility remaining. While at USC, Ambles, an Atlanta native, battled maturity issues. He was also declared academically ineligible for the 2011 season before he ultimately left Los Angeles after catching one pass for three yards in 2010.
