Darnell Walker, Jr. dismissed from University of Tulsa Golden Hurricane football team

TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- University of Tulsa football coach Bill Blankenship has kicked sophomore defensive back Darnell Walker Jr. off the Golden Hurricane football team.

Blankenship announced the move Thursday -- citing actions unbecoming the standards of a TU football player.

Further details were not released, although Blankenship mentioned academic, athletic and social standards that TU football players are to uphold.

Walker is a cornerback from Bolivar, Missouri, who played in 11 games and started eight during the 2013 season as a red-shirt freshman. He had 52 tackles, eight pass breakups and four interceptions.
