The four players accused in the investigation, which stemmed from an alleged off-campus residence in October,were suspended from the team. They were also accused of providing alcohol to minors. While they no longer played on the team, however,the three playerswere still allowed to go to school and attend classes. That is no longer the case.

"My clients and I appreciate Purdue’s careful review of the facts and circumstances surrounding this unfortunate incident, which led to the expulsion of these three players," said Mario Massillamany, who represented the accuser's family. "Purdue has taken the necessary steps to ensure that these players will not victimize another student, for which we are grateful."
