Four freshmen suspended indefinitely from Iowa State football

The following is a press release from Iowa State Athletic Communications.

“Four freshmen – Tayvonn Kyle, Jaeveyon Morton, Joseph Scates and Dallas Taylor-Cortez – have been suspended indefinitely from our football team for multiple incidents of poor choices and behavior. We have worked diligently to develop a culture of accountability in our program and these young men have failed to live up to those expectations.

The players will not have any involvement with team activities nor access to our facilities while suspended. They will, however, have access to our academic facilities with the accompanying expectations of any student-athlete in our program.

I would emphasize that these suspensions are not related to any one incident but rather a pattern of conduct that will not be tolerated within our Iowa State football program.”
