Arkansas junior Jacorey Williams has been dismissed from the men's basketball team, the school announced Wednesday.
The dismissal stems from multiple incidents this offseason.
"Members of our program carry a responsibility to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the expectations we have established for our student-athletes both on and off the court," said Arkansas coach Mike Anderson. "We wish him the best as he pursues his future away from Razorback Basketball."
Williams is one of three Arkansas players who were charged with forgery in July. He was subsequently allegedly involved in an incident with a bouncer at a local club.
The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 4.8 points in 16.2 minutes per game last season. His dismissal guarantees Arkansas will be without five of its top seven scorers from last season, and it should be noted that the team's sixth-leading scorer, Anton Beard, is serving a suspension that's also connected to that July arrest on forgery charges. In other words, it's uncertain whether Beard will rejoin the Razorbacks, meaning Arkansas could enter the season without six of last season's top seven scorers.
