The Texas A&M men's basketball program announced Saturday that sophomore guard J-Mychal Reese has been dismissed from the team following a violation of athletics department rules and regulations.
Reese had been one of A&M's most heralded recruits in recent seasons, but had only occasionally shown flashes of becoming an adept Southeastern Conference guard. His father, John Reese, is an A&M assistant under coach Billy Kennedy, and neither son or father traveled to Houston for the 8-3 Aggies' 64-52 nonconference loss to Oklahoma in the Toyota Center on Saturday evening.
The 6-foot-1 guard played in 39 games during his time as an Aggie, including six this season, averaging 6.3 points per contest for his A&M career. Multiple insiders say Reese's issues are linked to drug use.
