COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M redshirt freshman safety Kameron Miles has been dismissed from the team, the school announced on Thursday.

No reason was stated for the dismissal of Miles, an ESPN 300 recruit who signed with the Aggies in February 2013. Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin declined to elaborate on the circumstances surrounding Miles' dismissal when asked about it Thursday.

"My actions does not reflect my character, I made a mistake and I accept full responsibility and the consequences of my actions, Aggie always," Miles posted via Twitter on Wednesday evening. "I want to issue an apology to Coach Sumlin and the coaching staff, teammates, my family, WHMS for my misjudgment and the mistake I made."

Miles' Twitter account has since been deleted.

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound safety did not suit up in a game during his Texas A&M career. He redshirted the 2013 season after missing preseason training camp with a knee injury, but likely would have been a candidate to receive playing time this season with the Aggies needing depth at the position.

In regards to how the news affects the Aggies' secondary, Sumlin said, "He didn't play last year, so we're going to have to try to find somebody to help us."

Miles, a West Mesquite (Texas) High School product, was a U.S. Army All-American coming out of high school and was ranked as the 13th-best safety in the country and the No. 1 safety in Texas in the 2013 recruiting class.

The Aggies began spring practice on Feb. 28, and are hosting their fifth practice of spring drills Thursday.
