Houston has dismissed linebacker Eyabi Anoma from the program due to a violation of team rules, according to Sam Khan Jr. of ESPN.

The sophomore didn't play a game for the Cougars, sitting out the 2019 season as a transfer after beginning his career with Alabama.

Anoma entered college with huge expectations as a 5-star recruit and No. 4 overall player in the 2018 class by 247Sports' composite rankings. He saw action early in his career with the Crimson Tide, earning All-SEC Freshman Team honors after totaling nine tackles including two for a loss.
