The University of Arkansas announced today that forward Jacorey Williams has been dismissed from the basketball program, per Rob Dauster of NBC Sports’ College Basketball Talk.
Williams is one of three Arkansas players that were arrested and charged with forgery following alleged use of counterfeit money, and he has been linked two separate assaults this summer; one against his girlfriend and the other in retaliation against the bouncer that broke up the initial fight. Williams has not been arrested in either case.
Williams averaged 4.8 points over 16.2 minutes per game as a junior last year. Razorbacks head coach Mike Anderson offered a brief statement on his dismissal.
“Members of our program carry a responsibility to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the expectations we have established for our student-athletes both on and off the court,” head coach Mike Anderson said.
“We wish him the best as he pursues his future away from Razorback Basketball.”
Needless to say, with the two assaults potentially dogging him and now the forgery charge, Williams will likely have a hard time latching on with another team. Campus Sports will update this story as more information becomes available.
The two other players in the forgery case, Dustin Thomas and Anton Beard, remain on indefinite suspension.
