AUSTIN, Texas -- Texascoach Charlie Strong has dismissed another player off of hisroster in his inaugural season.

Redshirt freshman linebacker Deoundrei Davis was kicked off the team Friday for a violation of team rules, a school spokesperson confirmed. Davis is the eighth player dismissed by Strong since March.

The second-year linebacker was not practicing with the team while rehabbing from knee issues and did not play in a game at Texas. He sat out last season while recovering from a torn ACL suffered during his senior year at Cypress (Texas) Woods, where he was an ESPN 300 recruit.

The list of players Strong has kicked off now includes Davis, Joe Bergeron, Jalen Overstreet, Chevoski Collins, Kendall Sanders, Montrel Meander, Leroy Scott and Chet Moss. In addition to the eight dismissed players, four more -- tackle Desmond Harrison, tackle Kennedy Estelle, receiver/running back Daje Johnson and safety Josh Turner -- are suspended for Texas' home game Saturday against BYU.
