Yesterday, Longhorns head coach Mack Brown announced that wide receiver Cayleb Jones was going to be unconditionally released from the Texas football program. Jones had been accused of punching a Texas tennis player earlier this offseason.
While it is a sad departure for Jones, he at least is handling it with class — he posted this note to his Twitter last night, thanking Texas fans for supporting him:

Obviously getting kicked off a team is never a good thing, but hopefully Jones can turn things around for his future.
