Earlier this morning, Vanderbilt released a statement on its website regarding the permanent dismissal of Sophomore guard Eric McClellan:
Eric McClellan was dismissed from the Vanderbilt basketball team today by Coach Kevin Stallings. McClellan will not be a part of the program in the future, based upon newly discovered information that came to light Wednesday evening.
Presumably the disclosure of a misdemeanor theft charge, as was reported by the Tennessean in an article that has since been deleted.
Vandy's leading scorer Eric McClellan suspended for rest of season over academic issue, also faces theft charge. http://t.co/3Oa5KyE5j8— tnsports (@tnsports) January 9, 2014
