Ta'Jarvis Fuller has reportedly left the Illinois football team after a violation of team rules. Scout.com is reporting that Fuller has voluntarily withdrawn from the university. Illinois head football coach Tim Beckman did not discuss the specifics of the incident with the media.
Fuller was listed as a backup at the "star" position, which is a hybrid of the linebacker and safety positions in the Illinois system. He was limited during the team's pre-season with a broken hand, but he did see some snaps when Illinois played Charleston Southern on Sept. 15.
Fuller was a Parade All-American in high school, and Scout.com had him rated as a three-star prospect. He was recruited by Big Ten rivals Wisconsin and Indiana along with ACC schools Georgia Tech and Maryland before settling on Illinois. He enrolled in the spring and participated during the Illini's spring practices.
