BYU's Harvey Unga Hoping to Return From Honor Code Violation

Brigham Young coach Bronco Mendenhall says suspended running back Harvey Unga wants to return to school "in the most desperate way."

Unga, the Cougars' all-time leading rusher with 3,455, skipped the NFL draft to return for his senior year. But he was kicked out of school for violating the school's honor code.
"Harvey's first choice, and what he's fighting diligently for in trying to express to the administration at BYU, is that he wants to be back," Mendenhall said during a Mountain West Conference teleconference. "This goes back to the decision he made (last January) to not declare for the (NFL) draft early and stay at BYU."
His case will be heard by the school's dean. The school has specific criteria for student behavior, including rules against the use of alcohol and tobacco and premarital sex.

Unga has been dating BYU women's basketball player Keilani Moeaki. She  also voluntarily withdrew from school Friday due to an honor code violation. The pair were engaged last year before calling the wedding off last spring. Unga recently confirmed they are still dating.

If he is refused readmittance into school,  his options are to transfer to another school or enter the NFL's supplemental draft.
