Curtis Drake is no longer a part of the Penn State football team, according to coach Bill O'Brien.
The first-year coach did not specify why Drake isn't on the team anymore, but did say there is no chance of Drake returning.
The Philadelphia native, who caught five passes for 102 yards and a touchdown last season as a wide receiver, was converted into a cornerback this spring, and played on the defensive side of the ball in the 2012 Blue-White game. He saw time at quarterback for the Lions last season, primarily to run ground-based wildcat packages.
Drake was also involved in a locker room altercation with quarterback Matt McGloin last December in which McGloin suffered a concussion and was kept out of the TicketCity Bowl.
In other personnel news, O'Brien noted running back Curtis Dukes is having a "good summer, academically," and is with the team. Dukes was held out of spring drills to focus on his schoolwork.
O'Brien, who was speaking before teeing off at the Coaches vs. Cancer Golf Tournament, also gave reporters an update on wide receiver Devon Smith, who is facing marijuana possession charges and nursing a foot sprain.
"His health is doing better, he should be able to go by training camp," O'Brien said of Smith. "I'm going to let the legal process play out a little bit, because like I said on the caravan tour there, there's two sides to every story, and I stand behind Devon Smith. At the end of the day, we'll see what happens."
