An Indiana University panelA determined that football player Morgan Ellison sexually assaulted a fellow IU student while she slept and then used force to continue the assault when she woke up, IndyStar has learned.

In its findings, the Universitya€™s sexual misconduct hearing panel concluded that "the aggravating factor of [Ellison] engaging in sexual activity while Complainant was asleep, and [Ellison]a€™s use of force during the incident"A led to the determination that Ellison should be suspended from Indiana University for 2 1/2 years, according to records obtained by IndyStar.

Attempts to reach Ellison Wednesday for comment were unsuccessful.

During the hearing, Ellison denied using force and said all of the sexual activities that occurred were consensual, records state.

The panel explained its decision in a letter datedA Oct. 3.

One dayA earlier, IU football coach Tom Allen announced that Ellison, who had been suspended from the team in late August for undisclosed reasons,A had resumed practicingA with the team.

It is unclear if Ellison, who has not played in a game this season, appealed the panela€™s ruling. His deadline to appeal is Thursday.

The panel's determination also requires Ellison to undergo counseling and specifies that he is not to set foot on any IU campus during his suspension. And heA is prohibited from having contact with the student he is accused of assaulting.
