Franklin's DL Stansbury leaves Aggies; DB Davis arrested
COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Texas A&M defensive lineman Gavin Stansbury has left the team to focus on what coach Kevin Sumlin calls "personal issues."
Stansbury had been a star on last season's Aggie defensive front, playing in 10 games and recording 47 total tackles and three sacks. As a 6-foot-4, 257-pound junior from Franklin, La. Sumlin did not elaborate on the nature of the personal matters Stansbury was addressing.
In April, Stansbury was arrested and charged in Harris County with misdemeanor assault after a Rice University student accused him of pouring beer on the student's head and punching him in the face.
Sumlin also confirmed that 6-foot, 194-pound freshman defensive back Victor Davis has been suspended from the team after his recent arrest in his hometown of Rosenberg on a shoplifting charge.
