By on June 18, 2013

Missouri redshirt freshman linebacker Torey Boozer has been dismissed from the team. MU spokesman Chad Moller told the Kansas City Star that Boozer was booted from the team for an unspecified violation of team rules.

boozerBoozer, a native of Everman, Texas, tweeted Monday afternoon that he planned to transfer to SMU. The Mustangs recruited Boozer out of high school, but SMU has not yet confirmed that he will join the program.

Last October, Boozer was one of three Tigers players arrested in October for suspicion of possession of fewer than 35 grams of marijuana.

He pleaded guilty to an amended charge of trespassing and paid a fine.

Boozer (6-2, 230) was a 3-star safety prospect from Everman, Texas and signed with Missouri in 2012. In addition to Missouri and SMU, Boozer considered Arizona, Baylor, Houston and North Texas.

He added more than 20 pounds during a redshirt last season, but exited spring No. 3 on the depth chart at outside linebacker.
