Former Rice football player charged in death of DE Blain Padgett

A general view is seen during the College Football Sydney Cup match between Stanford University (Stanford Cardinal) and Rice University (Rice Owls) at Allianz Stadium on August 27, 2017 in Sydney, Australia.

A junior defensive lineman from Sour Lake, Texas, Padgett was a key player for the Rice defense in 2016 when he recorded 41 tackles, 5.5 for loss and two sacks.

Mouchantaf, who played on Rice's football team from 2011 to 2015, is charged with delivery of a controlled substance causing death and is now being held in Harris County jail, according to Harris County Sheriff's Office jail records. His death was ruled to be from the synthetic opioid carfentanil. Carfentanil, the drug the pill Padgett took was laced with, is 10,000 times more potent than morphine and 100 times more potent than fentanyl.

Stuart Mouchantaf has been charged in the death of Blain Padgett, a Rice football player who passed away this past March, according to the Houston Police Department. Both were defensive linemen.

The charge Mouchantaf is facing is a second-degree felony that carries a penalty ranging from five years to 99 years or life in prison. After Mouchantaf found out he was going to get charged with murder, he purchased a one-way ticket to Lebanon, and attempted to flee the country.

His bond is set at $250,000 because he is considered a flight risk. "He must surrender his passport and wear an ankle monitor".
