Willie Reed Withdraws From SLU

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell
According to a statement sent out by the University, basketball star Willie Reed has withdrawn from the University after being admitted earlier this semester.

Last spring, Reed was suspended from school and released from his scholarship after another student alleged sexual assault.

Reed thought about transferring to Kansas State but ultimately returned to SLU after being re-admitted on a conditional status but was still suspended by the athletic department.

"Willie Reed stopped attending classes a few weeks ago," the University said in a statement.

"Because Willie [Reed] failed to meet the terms of his reinstatement as a student at St. Louis University, he was administratively withdrawn from his classes on April 5, 2011 and is no longer enrolled."

The 6-foot-9 forward from Kansas City hasn't played basketball all year and his NBA draft stock took a hit. Since he's sat out so long, his only two options are insert the 2011 NBA draft or sit out another semester.

Reed averaged 12.4 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 2.1 blocks per game in his last action with SLU.
