KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Vols football player Jaylen McCollough is cleared of violating the University of Tennessee’s (UT) Code of Conduct, according to attorney Chloe Akers.
Akers also said a “thorough” investigation into the allegations related to the incident has been completed and McCollough “has resolved this matter” with UT’s Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards.
The Knox County District Attorney’s Office confirmed they are still investigating the Oct. 9 incident in which McCollough is accused of assaulting a man who claimed to have accidentally entered the wrong apartment in the Fort Sanders neighborhood. McCollough is charged with aggravated assault and is scheduled for a hearing in November.
This means McCollough could play against UT Martin on Saturday, Oct. 22. He did not play against Alabama the week before, with Coach Josh Heupel saying at the time McCollough “wasn’t available.”
“As part of an Alternative Resolution Agreement, there was no finding of responsibility against Mr. McCollough for any violations of the University’s Code of Conduct. He remains fully enrolled as a student without suspension or probation,” Akers said in a statement released to the media.
