Harvard basketball co-captain Kyle Casey plans to withdraw from school amid a cheating scandal that also may involve other athletes, according to several reports.

The Crimson reported that other athletes, including football players are also among those implicated. Hartford spokesman Tim Williamson declined to comment on Tuesday.
