Texas A&M announces Gavin Stansbury leaves team, Victor Davis suspended
Texas A&M defensive lineman Gavin Stansbury leaves the team for personal reasons, Kevin Sumlin announced Monday.
The Louisiana native played in 10 games last season and tied the team high with three sacks, and he recorded 47 tackles. Stansbury’s leave is a major blow to a defensive line that has to improve drastically.
“While we will miss Gavin being a part of our program, there is more to life than football,” Sumlin said. “We wish him the best as he focuses on the personal issues ahead of him.”
Stansbury is also facing a misdemeanor assault charge against a student at Rice University. With his presence gone, freshman Myles Garrett will shoulder more of the burden in creating havoc in the offensive backfield.
Sumlin also announced Victor Davis is suspended per team policy, following his recent arrest.
Since December, the Aggies have had seven different players arrested. Texas A&M reports for fall camp on July 31 and will open the season against South Carolina on the new SEC Network.
