Wake Forest quarterback Kyle Kearns is no longer with the team.

The Demon Deacons announced on Wednesday that Kearns had been dismissed from the team because of an unspecified violation of team rules. Kearns was a redshirt freshman in 2016.

Kearns recorded a statistic in four games for the Demon Deacons in 2016. He started the team’s 35-13 loss to Clemson and was 7-18 passing for 126 yards — though he did have a completion of 51 yards. He also was 4-10 passing for 60 yards in Wake’s Military Bowl win over Temple. He finished the season 13-35 for 206 yards and two interceptions behind Wake Forest No. 1 QB John Wolford.

He was a highly rated quarterback recruit in the class of 2015. Kearns was the No. 12 pro-style quarterback and a four-star recruit in the class, ranked ahead of Vanderbilt starting quarterback Kyle Shurmer and former QB prodigy-turned-wide receiver David Sills of West Virginia.
