Ex-Longhorn Bergeron joins Texas A&M-Commerce

COMMERCE, Texas (AP) - Former Texas running back Joe Bergeron who was dismissed from the team for undisclosed rules violations has enrolled at Texas A&M-Commerce.

A&M-Commerce spokesman Kevin Young said Monday that Bergeron is eligible to play this fall because the Lions are a Division II school.

Texas is Division I. Bergeron would have had to sit out a year if he moved to another Division I school.

Young also says Bergeron, a senior who began practicing with the Lions last week, chose A&M-Commerce to be close to his family in Mesquite, near Dallas.

Commerce is 60 miles northeast of Dallas.
