Jelan Kendrick Returns to Practice, Marshall Dismisses Haymon

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell
Last time we checked in with Jelan Kendrick, the freshman guard was suspended by team officials for a possible "verbal threat" that he made to one of his teammates. However, Head Coach Josh Pastner only called it a "personal issue."

Memphis acquired Kendrick with knowledge of his off the court issues and fights that resulted in him jumping high schools, and AAU teams.

Nonetheless, the talented freshman guard has returned to practice for the Memphis Tigers. The Tigers are currently ranked No. 19 in the country and it's mostly due to its talented backcourt.

He hasn't got the nod as to when he will play his first game, but the good news is he will be playing for the Tigers this season.

The Marshall Thundering Herd dismissed their forward Antonio Haymon after being arrested Saturday Head Coach Tom Herrion said during an announcement.

The Thundering Herd didn't lose a lot with Haymon. 6-foot-6 Haymon averaged 4.9 points, and grabbed 2.9 rebounds for Marshall last year.
