LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas freshman quarterback Brock Berglund will report to the Jayhawks' training camp next week after entering a not guilty plea to a misdemeanor assault charge in Colorado.

Berglund entered the plea Monday in Douglas County, Colo. He is charged after third-degree assault after allegedly punching a man April 9 during a party in Sedalia, a town about 25 miles southwest of Denver.

His attorney issued a statement Monday saying Berglund, who had enrolled at KU early but left the campus in the spring, will report to training camp Aug. 3. His trial is not scheduled until Dec. 13, after the season ends.
