MINNEAPOLIS -- Prized recruit Royce White said he's leaving the Minnesota basketball team because of his legal troubles and the stress they are causing his family and the program.

White made the announcement in a video posted on YouTube early Thursday called "Royce White -- Last Interview."

White is currently suspended indefinitely from the team while police investigate the theft of a laptop computer from a dorm room in November. White says he's innocent.

However, he says the investigation has been stressful for his family and the program, so he's quitting. He says he has no plans to transfer to another school.

The 6-8, 250-pound forward was Minnesota's top recruit last season. He hasn't been practicing with the team during his suspension.

A university spokesman said the team had no comment.
