Vanderbilt head coach Kevin Stallings has announced that Dai-Jon Parker and Kedren Johnson will not be allowed to return to the Commodore basketball team this fall.
"It is a privilege to be a Vanderbilt basketball player and with that privilege comes a high level of responsibility, both on and off the playing floor," said Stallings. "Unfortunately, the standards that were clearly set forth in both cases were not met and led to this decision.
"I did agree, however, to wait to announce both decisions until after they had determined where they would be continuing their college careers. Fortunately, our staff has been preparing for this possibility since last fall and feel that we have brought in six very talented perimeter players to lead us going forward. We certainly wish Dai-Jon and Kedren the best as they move forward with their lives."
Parker averaged 5.4 points and 3.1 rebounds per game in his three-year career with the Commodores. Johnson, who was suspended for the 2013-14 season due to a non-academic university policy, played two seasons with Vanderbilt from 2011 to 2013 and averaged 8.0 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.7 assists in his career.
