Yale quarterback Patrick Witt gained national headlines in November when he was faced with the decision of taking part in "The Game" against Harvard or attending a Rhodes Scholarship interview.
Now, the New York Times reports that the decision was made for him.
The Rhodes Trust suspended Witt's application after learning that a fellow student had accused him of sexual assault, according to the report.
However, his accuser did not go to the police and has not filed a formal complaint, the Times reports.
Witt's agent released a statement to the Hartford Courant, disputing parts of the report.
It says, in part:
"To be clear, Patrick’s Rhodes candidacy was never “suspended”, as the article suggests, and his official record at Yale contains no disciplinary issues."
The full statement is posted on the Courant's Web site.
