Former Washington Football Team running back Derrius Guice has been accused of raping two LSU students in 2016 when he was a freshman at the college.

Guice allegedly assaulted them in their own apartments following nights of heavy drinking, according to USA Today.

"At no time were allegations of physical or sexual assault brought against Derrius during his years as a student athlete at LSU," Guice's attorney, Peter D. Greenspun, said to the publication. "To bring up such assertions only after the Virginia charges were initiated certainly calls into question the credibility, nature and timing of what is being alleged years later."

The women also claimed that they disclosed the assaults to several college staffers, including at least two coaches, an athletics administrator, and a nurse. The school did not investigate the incidents.

LSU also released the following statement:

"LSU and LSU Athletics take all accusations of sexual assault with the utmost seriousness," the school said in a statement to ESPN. "Formal complaints are promptly and fully investigated and the rights and privacy of students are protected as stipulated by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. Complainants are also strongly encouraged to report the offense to law enforcement and are provided information on health care, counseling and supportive measures available."
