Curtis Kelly Reportedly Being Investigated By Kansas State

Kansas State Wildcats forward Curtis Kelly may be in trouble again.

We think.

Though details are slim, school officials are believed to be investigating a potential violation of department policy by Kelly, according to Austin Meek of the Topeka Capital-Journal. The school isn't saying anything citing confidential student-athlete records. 

But what kind of violation is it?

The Topeka Capital-Journal has learned the potential violation could result in Kelly's permanent suspension from the team and loss of financial aid, though Kelly has filed an appeal to retain his playing status.

The situation is not believed to involve NCAA rules violations, and no definitive time frame exists for the appeals process. Kelly's availability during the appeal will be determined internally.

We'll see how it turns out but it's definitely not good news for Kansas State. If Kelly were to leave, he would become the third player to leave the program this season along with Freddy Aspirilla and Wally Judge. K-State started the season in the top five and things have not been anything like a top five team as they've stumbled out to a 16-8 record.

Kelly was benched early in the season with head coach Frank Martin saying he was unhappy with his practice habits and Kelly was later suspended six games for accepting impermissible benefits from a department store.
