LSU Football head coach Ed Orgeron announced Thursday that sophomore nose tackle/guard Travonte Valentine was dismissed from the team.
Orgeron says Valentine violated team rules, according to a release from the school.
"At this point in time, Travonte is no longer part of our football program," said Orgeron. "We wish him the best."
Valentine recorded 10 tackles in the first five games of the 2016 season. He did not play in the final seven games.
