Citing multiple sources close to the program, the Daily Hampshire Gazette is reporting that UMass guard Jesse Morgan has been forced to withdraw from the University and that his UMass career “appears to be over.”
According to the report, Morgan has withdrew for disciplinary reasons in connection with an undisclosed incident that caused him to be suspended for the Minutemen’s Nov. 3 exhibition game against American International. He has returned to his home in Philadelphia and is trying to appeal the decision.
Morgan was UMass’ second leading scorer this season before tearing his ACL in the team’s Atlantic 10 opener against Saint Louis, which ended his season. He was also considered to be one of the team’s best defenders.
