Robert Upshaw has been dismissed by Fresno State after a third violation of Athletic Department policy.
Upshaw, a 7-foot center, was Rodney Terry's top recruit during his tenure at Fresno State.
Upshaw was suspended for three games in February, sitting out against UNLV, at San Diego State and against New Mexico. Upshaw was then supsended a second time at the end of the regular season.
When he signed with Fresno State over USC, Washington and Cal, Upshaw was a four-star prospect and considered one of the Top 50 prospects in the nation.
Upshaw will look to continue his career with another college.

Robert Upshaw’s dismissal puts the Fresno State men's basketball team in a bind for depth in the post. The team entered the 2012-2013 season with Kevin Foster being the only departing forward, but now will have to replace Foster, Upshaw, and Jerry Brown.
When Fresno State takes on Rutgers to open the 2013 season the focus will be on the team's quarterbacks and how they are affected by the opposing team's defenses.
The Fresno State Bulldogs were in full pads for practice 15 of Fall Camp on Wednesday. With temperatures rising in their second week of camp, Fresno State Head Coach Tim DeRuyter asked his team to “embrace that uncomfort.”
The Fresno State Bulldogs will host their second scrimmage of fall camp on Friday at 7:00pm, which will be open to the public. Head coach Tim DeRuyter plans to run 80 to 100 snaps in the scrimmage, with the second and third stringers getting the majority of the reps.
