Notre Dame Basketball has lost its leading scorer, Jerian Grant, who is no longer enrolled at the university due to an 'academic matter'.
Grant released a statement Sunday saying that he regretted the mistake and that he would not be a student at Notre Dame for the spring 2014 semester. The senior said that he hopes to return to the school as soon as possible to finish his degree and continue playing with the basketball team.
"It is my full intention to return to Notre Dame as soon as possible following the 2014 spring semester. I intend to do whatever it takes to earn my degree and finish out my college basketball career here. I understand that there is a process that I must go through in order to come back to school and I will be patient with that process."
