Arkansas Razorbacks pitcher Trey Killian, a Mountain Home graduate, has been suspended for the first six games of the season. According to a press release from the university, Killian was suspended for "impermissible interaction" in high school.
The following is a statement from the University of Arkansas athletic department:
Sophomore Trey Killian will be withheld from the first six games of the 2014 baseball season due to a violation that occurred prior to his arrival at the University of Arkansas. The violation occurred as a result of an impermissible interaction while he was a high school student-athlete. The University of Arkansas has worked proactively to provide pertinent information to allow the NCAA to resolve the matter prior to the beginning of the season. We support Trey and look forward to his return to the field for the Razorbacks.
Killian graduated from Mountain Home in 2012. He was a three time All-State and All-Conference selection for the Bombers, and he was Arkansas's Gatorade Player of the year during his senior season. During his freshman season at Arkansas, he pitched in 16 games, including five starts. His record was 3-3 with an ERA of 3.19 as he held his opponents to a .164 batting average.
Killian was scheduled to make a start in this weekend's series at home against Appalachian State. The Razorbacks and Mountaineers play a three-game weekend series with game times of 3:05 p.m. Friday, 12:05 p.m. Saturday and 1:05 p.m. Sunday.
