Penn State freshman defensive tackle Kamonte Carter is no longer a member of the football team due to a violation of team rules. Lions247 first reported the news on Saturday afternoon. A Penn State spokesperson confirmed the report to

"Kam Carter was informed on April 21 that he is no longer a member of the Penn State football team for a violation of team rules," Penn State said in a statement. "We appreciate Kam's contributions to the program and wish him success in the future."

Carter added significant weight during his freshman season and looked to still be a year or two from becoming a meaningful contributor on the field for the Nittany Lions. The nature of Carter's dismissal is unknown at this time.

Carter joins former Nittany Lion Brent Wilkerson as the second dismissal this offseason. Wilkerson was removed from the team earlier this spring and officially dismissed earlier this week as his sexual assault case continues forward.
