Marvin Kinsey Jr. cut from CSU football following suspension

Ryan Loberger

The Marvin Kinsey Jr. era has come to an end at Colorado State University, CSU athletics announced Monday night. Head Coach Mike Bobo announced last week that the senior running back was suspended indefinitely for violating team rules: the third time in the past three years that Kinsey had been suspended from the program. 

Kinsey missed the first half of the Gildan New Mexico Bowl in 2017, along with wide receiver Robert Awunganyi and fellow running back Rashaad Boddie. Kinsey also missed time again during the Rams’ season opener against Hawaii in 2018. The Rams lost both games.


The Georgia native signed with the Rams as a two star prospect coming out of Riverwood High School in 2016. In his time wearing the green and gold, Kinsey was an explosive force in the back field. This season, Kinsey found the end zone in five of seven games, totaled 703 yards on the ground with six touchdowns and added 209 yards receiving with two scores. 

Kinsey had his share of problems when it came to ball security. After yielding two fumbles against Utah State, Kinsey put the ball on the field again in his next two games.

There is no word as to why Kinsey was suspended, and now removed, from the team last week, other than violating the program’s policy. 

Due to this being a developing story, The Collegian will add updates as the situation unfolds.
