Dylan Sumner-Gardner’s career at Boise State never lived up to his recruiting hype of the former four-star defensive back out of Mesquite, Texas. His time with the Broncos has ended as the school has announced he is no longer with the program.

Boise State released a short statement on Sumner-Gardner, "due to a violation of team rules and a continuation of academic issues from earlier this season.”

Sumner-Gardner had issues dating back to last year where he did not travel with the team to the Poinsettia Bowl and was then suspended for the first four games of this season, because of “failing to meet NCAA football academic eligibility requirements.”

Seems like after multiple chances to redeem himself, Sumner-Gardner has not been able to get back on track to remain in school.

Starting in place of Sumner-Gardner will be freshman Kekoa Nawahine.

In his time at Boise State he played in 23 games but only 10 over the past two seasons. This season was the best for Sumner-Gardner best where he played in six games and had 29 tackles and an interception.
