Safety Tramaine Brock leaves the U

 

From Kent Youngblood at the Star Tribune

Gophers starting safety Tramaine Brock has left school, apparently for academic reasons, and likely won't return.

Minnesota athletic director Joel Maturi confirmed that Brock is no longer enrolled, but would not comment further. Gophers head coach Tim Brewster declined comment.

Brock, a native of Long Beach, Miss., came to the Gophers from Mississippi Gulf Coast Junior College before last season. He started all 13 games. The hard-hitting safety finished third on the team with 73 total tackles. He also had an interception and forced three fumbles.

''As of now he's not in school,'' Maturi said.

Brock did not apply to be included in the 2009 NFL draft. The defensive back did not respond to text messages requesting an interview.

First Curtis Thomas last season and now Tramaine Brock. Boy, not good for a defensive backfield that needed to improve next year. Theret is average; Rallis is not a Big 10 safety.

GN EDIT:

Official relase from U of MN

In addition to the six aforementioned student-athletes, Brewster announced that defensive back Tramaine Brock is not enrolled at the University for the Spring semester.

 “Tramaine Brock will not be a part of our team this spring,” Brewster said. “But we fully anticipate that he will re-join the team this summer and be a part of our program in the fall.”

Of course he is expecting him to be back.  Hopefully Mr. Brock can get things taken care of before practice in August.  I'm not holding my breath but hopefully he'll get his academics straightened out.
