On Wednesday, Missouri announced that sophomore defensive end Walter Brady was dismissed from the program and cited a violation of team policy.
Brady took to Twitter on Friday to dispel any ideas that his dismissal came from either legal or academic issues.
I wish people wouldn't think the worst of my situation. There are no legal or academic issues.Looking forward to new possibilities anywhere.

Brady’s 7 sacks last season tied him with Charles Harris for the most on the Tigers and the eighth-most in the SEC.
Missouri will also be without defensive lineman Harold Brantley, who was ruled academically ineligible on Wednesday. The Tigers defensive line went from a potential strength to a weakness following the losses of Brady and Walton. Former 5-star DL Terry Beckner Jr. was suspended indefinitely after an arrest in January. Beckner is also coming off ACL and MCL tears, which he suffered against BYU last year.
