Suspended Tennessee Vols QB Kaidon Salter apologizes for 'my negative choices'
Tennessee freshman quarterback Kaidon Salter has apologized after being suspended for spring football practice.
"I just want to take this opportunity to apologize to my team, my coaches the Vol fans & my parents for my negative choices I know my choices disappointed many but my end goal is to eliminate my distractions get on the field & earn my respect back #gottoKEEPmypopsPROUD #levelup," Salter wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.
He was one of four players suspended after an incident at Stokley Hall in early March.
Martavius French, Isaac Washington and Aaron Willis are set to appear in court April 12 on drug-related misdemeanor charges.
French and Willis face misdemeanor charges of simple drug possession and drug paraphernalia. Washington faces a misdemeanor charge of simple drug possession.
The UT police crime log lists the March 12 arrest of a person under age 18 on at least one misdemeanor drug charge related to the incident, but doesn't name the underage person. UT officials and police have not confirmed whether Salter, who is 17, is the minor who was arrested.
New UT coach Josh Heupel confirmed on March 26 that Salter was indefinitely suspended.
Heupel said Friday that he hopes for a resolution by the end of spring football.
Salter, Willis and Washington enrolled early as members of Tennessee's 2021 recruiting class. French signed in the 2020 recruiting class.
Salter, one of the key prospects in the class, was the No. 154 prospect in the nation in the 247Sports Composite.
