Clemson has not commented much on the dismissal of Ebo Ogundeko. That hasn’t stopped the defensive end from reaching out to the program via social media.
Ogundeko took to Twitter to apologize after having been dismissed for a “violation of team rules and conduct detrimental to the team.”
The tweet reads:
The media twist so much up.. I just would like to apologize to Clemson University for bringing bad publicity and for letting everyone down.
— Ebo Ogundeko (@Glo_Ebo) May 19, 2015
What it is that the media “twisted” isn’t entirely clear. Ogundeko was arrested and charged with transaction fraud, per a report from the Clemson police.
He was released Tuesday on $5,000 bond but an investigation is still in the works, per FOX Carolina. Whether Ogendeko’s tweet is a plea of innocence or simply an apology for putting the program in a bad light is still unknown.
Clemson has yet to comment on the arrest, or go into detail about the dismissal, reports say.
