Joyner Holmes’ sophomore season at Texas won’t start until December, according to a school release. The reason behind it, is that the sophomore star has committed a school violation, and thus will miss the fall semester.

"I take full responsibility for my mistakes and I am disappointed in my actions. I understand what a great privilege it is to be a student-athlete at The University of Texas and that is not something I take lightly. I am committed to using this time to focus on myself, academics, and improving as a basketball player. I am looking forward to returning in December to help our team reach our goals on the court."

Head coach Karen Aston has this to say in the release:

"Although I am disappointed that Joyner will not be with us in the fall semester, I am firmly convinced that she will learn and grow through this process. She will re-join us as a better version of herself and a more mature student-athlete. We will welcome her back with open arms when she returns in December."

The details of the violation have not been released.
