The middle Ball brother will no longer be at UCLA.

LiAngelo Ball is being pulled from UCLA.

TMZ Sports reported that LaVar Ball is pulling his middle son, who is currently suspended from the team following his arrest in China, from the school.

"We're told LaVar believes the suspension was unfair, especially since the charges were dropped," TMZ reports.

ESPN's Jeff Goodman has confirmed the report.

LiAngelo, who was one of three UCLA players arrested in China for shoplifting, was indefinitely suspended from the program as a result of the incident.

The middle Ball child was the least-hyped recruit of the three, as 247Sports ranked him the No. 181 player in the 2017 class. He is not viewed as a serious NBA prospect.
