According to a report from Nick Baumgardner of MLive.com, the Michigan Wolverines have suspended sophomore wide receiver Csont’e York indefinitely and he will not report to fall camp.
It is unknown exactly what York has been suspended for, but he has been being investigated by Ann Arbor police. York has not been charged with any crime at this point in time.
Michigan head coach Brady Hoke sent out a statement on the suspension:
“Csont’e York is suspended indefinitely for failing to meet team standards and will not report for fall camp. We demand that every person in our program represent the University of Michigan and the Michigan football program the right way on and off the field. When people fall short of that, there are consequences.”
York played in just one game last season with the Wolverines as a reserve wide receiver, and did nothing worth noting. Standing at 6-foot-3 and 191 pounds, York had a future in college football, and could have turned into a very tough match-up problem for opposing cornerbacks. Instead, he has decided to go down the wrong path and get into off-the-field issues before his full potential was reached.
Hopefully everything turns out to be a misunderstanding as far as the investigation of York is concerned, and he is able to get back to his football career. It’s always a shame to see players make stupid decisions that cut their careers short. York is one of the very many college players to get mixed up in issues off of the gridiron, and whether he’s found guilty or not, he may not have a future with the Wolverines.
Overall, there will likely be more news on the suspension over the next few weeks. Michigan will make another statement once they find out whether York will be charged with a crime, and until then things will be very quiet on this story. York needs to do some serious thinking about where his life is heading, and change things now if he does get the chance.
