KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Former Vols tight end Cameron Clear pleaded guilty Friday to a lesser charge of Class A misdemeanor theft after being caught in May with another player's laptop.

Clear was dismissed from the University of Tennessee football team shortly after his arrest by head coach Derek Dooley.

As a first-time offender Clear qualified for judicial diversion and was sentenced to 11 month 29 days probation. He must also pay court cost and possibly restitution.

Clear was originally charged with felony theft between $1,000 and $10,000.

Clear, a 6'6", 283-pound tight end from Memphis, played in 12 games for the Vols in 2011, including two starts.
