KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee has dismissed freshman quarterback Kaidon Salter from the football team.

The school made the announcement in a two-line statement and gave no details behind the decision.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reported that Salter and freshman offensive lineman Amari McNeill were charged with misdemeanor drug offenses after an early morning traffic stop Saturday.

Salter, a former four-star recruit, had also been suspended during spring practice.
