Lorman, Miss. • Former Vanderbilt football player Jaborian "Tip" McKenzie, who is facing rape charges in Nashville, Tenn., is playing football again at Alcorn State.
McKenzie, who is from Woodville, Miss., returned three kickoffs for 80 yards against Mississippi State last weekend in a 51-7 loss. McKenzie is not on the current roster posted on Alcorn State's website, but made his debut with Alcorn State last weekend against the Bulldogs.
McKenzie, 19, and three other former players are charged with raping an unconscious 21-year-old Vanderbilt student at a campus dormitory in June. Vanderbilt officials learned of the incident checking surveillance video for another matter. The four were dismissed from the university June 29.
