Kansas defensive tackle Jamal Greene was dismissed from the team today after his arrest in connection with an attempted aggravated robbery.
"I can tell you he's not longer a member of the team," Kansas associate athletic director Jim Marchiony said.
Greene, 22, and former Kansas football player Vernon Brooks, 23, were arrested early today. According to reports, Lawrence police were dispatched to an apartment in the 2600 block of West Sixth Street around 1:30 a.m.
Witnesses told police that two men had entered and made them lie on the floor at gunpoint. Greene and Brooks soon left the apartment and no one was injured.
Never miss a local story.
About 2:30 a.m., Brooks was taken into custody without incident. Greene was arrested around 9 a.m. without incident.
Greene, who played at Kansas City Washington High, had been singled out by Jayhawks defensive coordinator Carl Torbush during spring practice as a potential impact player. Green started eight games in 2008 and appeared in nine games last season.
Brooks, a linebacker who arrived from Kansas last year from Blinn Junior College in Texas, had been dismissed from the team by coach Turner Gill before spring practice for violating a team rule.
