MISSOULA, Mont. — A tight end who was dismissed from the University of Washington for a violation of team rules has joined the University of Montana football team.
Kavario Middleton practiced with the Grizzlies on Tuesday.
Middleton, a junior, caught 26 passes for 257 yards and three touchdowns in 2009 and was slated to start for the Huskies this year. But he was dismissed from the team in July for what The Seattle Times reported was a failed drug test.
Middleton tried to transfer to Nebraska, but he told the Lincoln Journal-Star on Aug. 23 that he was going to have to play elsewhere because of academic and admission hold-ups.
