Three Cyclone Football Players Reinstated


AMES, Iowa - The Iowa State Athletics Department announced Thursday that it has reinstated football players Kennard Banks, Kevin Hamlin and Cleyon Laing.   The players are eligible to participate in all team activities effective immediately.

The three players were suspended indefinitely from competition Tuesday after violating the athletics department's student-athlete discipline policy. 

After reviewing and discussing the circumstances of this situation with several senior level University officials, including a representative of the student judicial system, the athletics department determined the appropriate action, at this time, is to reinstate the players. That action is provided for in the department's discipline policy. 

The players will, however, be sanctioned under the parameters of the department's drug testing policy. Additionally, the three students may face sanctions from the student judicial system.

The Iowa State athletics department will not have any further comment on this issue.
