Three Central Michigan players have been kicked off the football
team after being charged with crimes, including a prep star who
transferred from Michigan.
Coach Dan Enos released a statement Wednesday saying the players
violated rules for good conduct. They are running back Austin White
of Livonia, tight end Joe Sawicki of Mokena, Ill., and receiver
Daniel Harris of Miramar, Fla.
White and Sawicki are charged with possessing hallucinogenic
mushrooms and operating a drug house in their dorm room. Harris is
charged with stealing a phone from a car.
White couldn’t play last season after transferring from
Michigan. Sawicki didn’t play. Harris was a walk-on who joined in
Campus Police Chief Bill Yeagley says a lawyer is arranging
White’s surrender on drug charges.
