NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vanderbilt has identified the four players dismissed from the team for an incident last month that is being investigated by police.
Coach James Franklin released a statement Monday saying defensive back Brandon Banks, safety Corey Batey, receiver Jaborian ``Tip'' McKenzie and tight end Brandon Vandenburg are no longer on the roster after violating team rules.
Vanderbilt dismissed the players June 29 for an incident being investigated by the Metro Nashville Police Department.
Vanderbilt is releasing its media guide for the upcoming season Tuesday at the start of the Southeastern Conference media days, and the players won't be listed.
Franklin said in his first statement on the incident that the football team will continue holding itself to the same high standards demanded of all Vanderbilt students.
