WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — Maize native and former Iowa State Cyclone Caleb Grill is no longer with the basketball team, per a release from the school.

The release says the dismissal is “due to a failure to meet the program’s expectations.”

Cyclones head coach TJ Otzelberger said in the release: “We hold our players to high standards and there are expectations that our student-athletes are held accountable for.”

Grill released a statement on his Twitter account on Wednesday evening.

“Unfortunately, I said something that I regret which has cost me the opportunity to finish out my dream at Iowa State,” Grill’s statement reads in part. “I hope that all the players and Iowa State fans can find it in their hearts to forgive me.

“In the end, I want to be remembered as a Cyclone no matter what my next step is. I love Ames and I love Iowa State and I will hopefully become a booster or donor some day when I get older. I love each and every person who is affiliated with Iowa State and I am proud to be an alumni of this university.”

In 25 games with the Cyclones, Grill averaged 9.5 points, four rebounds and 1.4 assists per game.
