Tulane suspends West Jeff standout after rape arrest

Tulane University says officials have suspended a football recruit after his arrest for alleged rape.

The school made the announcement in a statement about "Teddy" Veal, a stand out from West Jefferson High School.

"Veal, a Tulane University freshman from Harvey La., and a member of the Green Wave football team, has been suspended from the team," the statement read.  "The suspension, effective immediately, was implemented after Veal was arrested and charged with simple rape."

Officials say they cannot comment on if Veal is still attending Tulane.

"Federal law prohibits the university from disclosing any disciplinary action taken against a student regarding his or her enrollment in the university."
Police booked Veal into the Orleans Parish Prison this morning.

Niguel Q. Veal is 17-years-old.  His birthday is next month.
