Tre Clark leaves VCU basketball program due to university suspension

One of VCU's most exciting up-and-comers, Tre Clark III, has officially left the VCU men's basketball program. The only detail we have is a comment made by Mike Rhoades in his post-game presser, stating "a university suspension, I'm just going to leave it at that for now":

VCU Athletics followed up this afternoon with a very minimal statement to media:
<blockquote>VCU ATHLETICS STATEMENT ON JIMMY “TRE” CLARK III:

Tre Clark is no longer a member of the men’s basketball program at VCU. We are not allowed to comment further on this matter.

&nbsp;</blockquote>
Rumors circulated on the ram nation forums this afternoon after images were provided showing him in attendance in uniform at the game last night against Rhode Island, but he never checked in.

His name has already been removed from the official VCU Athletics roster:

Tre was averaging 5.9 points per game for the Rams, and logged an incredible team-leading 6.2 steals percentage.
