The ambassador for the class of 2016 was punished for going to the Rutgers-Tulane game Saturday.

It remains to be seen what action, if any, Kyle Flood will take.

Per Todderick Hunt, #CHOPNation's favorite commit, Ted Field, was kicked off his high school team yesterday for missing film study to attend the Rutgers-Tulane game on Saturday. Field allegedly was allowed to miss film study to attend a college game before, but did not have the same permissions for this past weekend:

According to a source, the junior advised Ricci last Monday that he'd miss film study for the Rutgers game. However, he received a text message from Ricci Saturday morning, an hour and 20 minutes before film study had even began -- after playing in a game the night before -- calling for him to drop off his equipment Monday morning. -Todderick Hunt, NJ.com

Hunt goes on to describe that Field and the Garnet Valley coaching staff have had a "hot-and-cold" relationship, possibly stemming from Field's decision to transfer to Cardinal O'Hara then back to take advantage of his former high school's academic scheduling in order to enroll at Rutgers early.
