COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Former Port Allen standout athlete Darian Claiborne, who became a standout middle linebacker for the Texas A&M Aggies last season as a true freshman, was dismissed from the Texas A&M football team Tuesday afternoon, June 3,
Aggie head coach Kevin Sumlin announced.
“These two individuals (Claiborne and Isaiah Golden) have failed to meet the high expectations and standards that we have for our football players and as representatives of this university,” Sumlin said. “These two players have exhibited a pattern of behavior that we will not tolerate at Texas A&M.”
Claiborne was arrested on December 22, 2013, on drug charges in Texas and was suspended from the team during the Aggies’ Chick-Fil-A Bowl game against Duke Univeristy.
He was named to the SEC All-Freshman team after leading the team with 89 tackles, 7 for loss. He also forced two fumbles and had an interception.
