Report: Former Texas A&M WR Kirk Merritt pleads no contest to 2 charges of indecent exposure

Former Texas A&M wide receiver Kirk Merritt reportedly has pled no contest to two charges of indecent exposure.

As reported by the Houston Chronicle’s Brent Zwerneman on Monday, Merritt’s defense pled “no contest” to the charges to resolve the issue. Merritt reportedly received two years of deferred adjudication in addition to 40 hours of community service.

In April, Merritt was dismissed from Texas A&M’s team after exposing his genitals to two athletic department tutors within a day last October. His attorney argued a “bad case of jock itch” in Merritt’s defense.

One of the victims in the case spoke out in April, calling the “jock itch” claim absurd.

Merritt transferred to Texas A&M from Oregon during the summer of 2016. He sat out last season because of NCAA transfer rules.
