Boise State cornerback Quaylon Ewing-Burton is no longer with the football program.
Ewing-Burton, a sophomore during the 2011 season, did not live up to the standards of the program, a team spokesman said. He has been removed from the Broncos' team web site.
Ewing-Burton played in all 13 games for Boise State (12-1). He recorded 26 tackles. Ewing-Burton was forced into the starting lineup after an injury to Jerrell Gavins. He started four games, including strong performances against Nevada (six tackles) and Fresno State (nine).
But he lost his place in the starting lineup and is probably best remembered for his struggles against TCU. Ewing-Burton was in defense on Horned Frogs' wide receiver Josh Boyce for the game-winning 2-point conversion in the Broncos' 36-35 home loss.
He did not have a tackle in the last four games of the season.
Here is a feature story colleague Chadd Cripe did on Ewing-Burton, which highlighted some problems issues he had during his high school career and "maturity' concerns early in his Boise State career.
Starting cornerbacks Jamar Taylor and Gavins are expected back for the 2012 season.
