MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota athletics director Joel Maturi says freshman Royce White's status with the basketball team is unchanged despite a YouTube video from White saying he's quitting.
White has been suspended all season following an altercation with a mall security guard and, later, a dormitory theft in which he was named as a possible suspect. White says he's innocent.
White says in a YouTube video early Thursday that the investigation has been stressful for his family and the team and so he's quitting.
Maturi says in a short e-mail to The Associated Press that White hasn't informed anyone in his department about a decision.
