LiAngelo’s father, LaVar, is “removing him from the institution” because he “believes the suspension was unfair, especially since the charges were dropped,” according to the report by TMZ Sports. ESPN also had the initial quotes coming out of the Big Baller camp:
LaVar on pulling LiAngelo from UCLA: “I’m going to make him way better for the draft that UCLA ever could have.”— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) December 4, 2017
LaVar Ball told ESPN he has pulled LiAngelo Ball from UCLA. "We are exploring other options with Gelo," LaVar said. "He's out of there."— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) December 4, 2017
While LiAngelo hasn’t been officially withdrawn from the school, he’s currently at his home in Chino Hills and isn’t planning on returning to the campus, according to the same report.
LiAngelo hasn’t been allowed to travel with the team since his suspension and has missed eight of the Bruins’ games. Should LiAngelo attempt continue his basketball career, he could request a transfer, try his hand at the NBA G-League or consider going overseas.
