NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) – Former Yale basketball captain Jack Montague, who was expelled from the Ivy League school in 2016 for sexual misconduct, has enrolled at Belmont University in Tennessee.
Montague, who is still suing to be readmitted to Yale, complained in a court deposition last spring that he was unable to apply to other schools. He said
Yale would not release his transcript until he paid a disputed tuition bill.
Karen Schwartzman, a spokeswoman for Montague, says Yale later released the transcript, allowing Montague to enroll at Belmont this fall. She says not all
of his credits transferred and he will need two semesters to graduate.
He exhausted his basketball eligibility at Yale.
Montague denies the sexual misconduct allegations. No criminal charges were ever sought.
Yale’s attorneys have said the school and its officials acted appropriately.
The lawsuit, which also seeks monetary damages, is expected to go to trial next year.
