Former USF offensive lineman Benjamin Knox received five years probation Monday as part of a plea deal for firing a gun on campus, according to the Hillsborough County cicuit court.

Knox was one of two Bulls arrested on Oct. 11 for shooting a firearm from a parking garage at a nearby dorm. Knox and defensive back Lamar Robbins were suspended from all team activities immediately following the incident.

Robbins has been reinstated with the team and was not prosecuted.

Knox, who pleaded no contest, must also serve 300 hours of community service, submit to random drug tests and relinquish his firearm.

He has since transferred to Independence Community College in Kansas, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
