Vanderbilt junior point guard and leading scorer Kedren Johnson confirmed today that he is no longer with the basketball team or enrolled in school.
During a brief conversation, Johnson said that the matter is related to “student conduct” and referred to his situation as a “suspension,” adding that it “is not forever.”
Johnson said that he will be releasing a statement through the university with further details.
Vanderbilt athletics director David Williams said that Vanderbilt intends to release a statement later on Monday afternoon. Coach Kevin Stallings has not returned messages.
Johnson, a local product from Marshall County, led the Commodores in scoring (13.5) and assists (3.6) last season. He had offseason surgery on his right shoulder but was expected to be at full strength this season.
Earlier today, multiple reports confirmed starting wing Kevin Bright signed a pro contract with a German team to end his Vanderbilt career after one season. Johnson’s exit, while perhaps not permanent, leaves Vanderbilt with nine scholarship players.
Jeff Lockridge also writes for the (Nashville) Tennessean, a Gannett property.
