B.J. Autry, Jeremy Faulk leave Baylor for undisclosed reasons

Baylor football players B.J. Autry and Jeremy Faulk are no longer on the team and have withdrawn from school, a BU spokesperson confirmed to ESPN.com.

They're the first players to leave since interim coach Jim Grobe was hired May 30 in the wake of the sexual assault crisis that cost former coach Art Briles his job.

Autry, an offensive lineman, voluntarily left the team and withdrew from the university. Faulk, a defensive tackle, was released from the team and subsequently withdrew from BU.

Baylor has not disclosed why they exited the program.

Autry and Faulk were junior college All-Americans who joined the program in January and participated in Baylor's spring practices.

Faulk, a transfer from Garden City (Kansas) Community College, was expected to be the Bears' starting nose tackle this season.

Autry transferred in from Coffeyville (Kansas) Community College and was listed as a backup guard on BU's post-spring depth chart.
