It's Official: Agee Gone From Gannon
Kelvin Agee, a promising freshman who led Gannon in scoring this season, has been dismissed from the school. The rumor had been swirling for weeks and was confirmed in an email Gannon SID Dan Teliski sent to me today.
In the email, Teliski wrote, "Kelvin has been dismissed from the University due to violation of the school’s code of conduct policy. Unfortunately, I can't comment any further on Kelvin’s situation due to student-athlete's privacy issues, rules and regulations. But I can confirm Kelvin is no longer attending classes at Gannon."
What a shame. Scoring 358 points in 24 starts as a freshman, Agee was on pace to be among GU's all-time leading scorers and three-point shooters. He was named Most Outstanding Player of the Gary Miller Classic after leading the Knights to two wins that weekend. For the next three years, Agee and Stephen Battle would have been a formidable inside-outside combo that certainly would have led Gannon to many victories.
Instead, Agee -- if he's accepted by another college -- will be on his third school in three years, earning himself a less-than-stellar reputation. I don't know all the details behind his expulsion, but it's a real shame for everyone.
