Tennessee suspends TE Cameron Clear
By Edward Aschoff
Tennessee has suspended sophomore tight end Cameron Clear indefinitely after his arrest on a felony theft charge involving a laptop stolen from a Volunteers' baseball player.
Tennessee associate athletic director for communications, Jimmy Stanton, announced the suspension on Wednesday and said university officials were continuing to gather information.
Jail records show Clear was arrested Tuesday on a felony charge of theft between $1,000 and $10,000. Bail was set at $2,500. Clear posted bond late Tuesday night.
Clear, a rising sophomore, left spring listed as No. 2 on the depth chart at tight end behind senior Mychal Rivera, who caught 29 passes for 344 yards and a touchdown in 2011.
