MTSU football player arrested, charged with two counts of rape


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Reginald “Zeke” Cobb has been arrested by the Murfreesboro Police Department and charged with two counts of rape. The charges stem from a September 2018 incident.

He was arrested Monday after being indicted by a Rutherford Co. grand jury. His bond is set at $60,000.

His first court hearing is set for Nov. 25 at 9 a.m. in Rutherford Co.

Cobb is a junior wide receiver at Middle Tennessee State University.

Here’s a statement from MTSU Head Football Coach Rick Stockstill on Zeke Cobb:

“Zeke is suspended from our team as we allow the legal process to move forward. It is very disappointing and, if substantiated, such actions do not represent or reflect the standards we have worked extremely hard to develop for our program.”

Cobb is a native of Dalton, GA.
