Tennessee suspends Clear indefinitely after arrest

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee has suspended sophomore tight end Cameron Clear indefinitely after his arrest on a felony theft charge.

Jimmy Stanton, Tennessee's associate athletic director for communications, announced the suspension Wednesday and said university officials were continuing to gather information.

Jail records show the 19-year-old sophomore from Memphis was arrested Tuesday on a felony charge of theft between $1,000 and $10,000. Bail was set at $2,500. Clear posted bond late Tuesday night.

The 6-foot-6, 283-pound Clear entered the spring No. 2 on the depth chart behind senior Mychal Rivera, despite catching only one pass last year. He played in all 12 games last season, starting two, and was 1 of Tennessee's top recruits in 2011.
