Unga To Withdraw From BYU

PROVO, Utah — BYU student-athlete Harvey Unga announced he has decided to withdraw from school. Unga made the decision to withdraw as a result of a violation of the BYU honor code.

Unga, a 6-foot, 237-pound running back, is the school’s all-time leading rusher with 3,455 yards gained over his first three seasons in the Cougar backfield. He led the Mountain West Conference in rushing last year while garnering first-team All-MWC honors after a third consecutive 1,000-yard season.

“I fully support Harvey and his decision regarding his personal situation,” BYU football coach Bronco Mendenhall said. “The possibility of not having Harvey on the field in the fall would certainly have an impact on our team, but my main concern right now is in supporting Harvey.”

Women’s basketball player Keilani Moeaki has also withdrawn from the school due to an honor code violation.
