Pitt offensive lineman Alex Bookser was charged with a DUI back in May. Even though it's been about two months since the incident, head coach Pat Narduzzi still doesn't have an update yet on his status for the upcoming season with regards to disciplinary action.
“Not right now,” Narduzzi said at ACC media day when asked if a punishment has been finalized. “Me and Bookser have talked about it, but that’s about it.”
Narduzzi conceded that a resolution could be announced before camp starts. Or maybe the week of the season opener against Youngstown State.
“I don’t know. We’ll play it by ear,” he said.
Of note also is that Narduzzi said athletic director Heather Lyke would have a say and that he would discuss whatever the decision was with her.
You never know but it seems hard to believe Bookser wouldn't miss any game time. But if you were hoping for a decision, that still seems far off. That's not too surprising since his preliminary hearing scheduled for June was reportedly pushed back until August. This may still not get settled for some time.
