Darren Sharper has been KICKED OUT of his college Hall of Fame -- with officials at the College of William & Mary telling us they refuse to continue to honor a convicted rapist.
Sharper was inducted into the W&M Hall of Fame back in 2008 ... after a stellar collegiate career that led to an impressive run in the NFL.
Now, after Sharper pled guilty in rape cases in multiple states ... and after receiving criticism from high profile alums ... the school has decided to throw Sharper out of the Hall.
"After a period of thoughtful deliberation, the decision has been made to remove Darren Sharper from the William & Mary Athletics Hall of Fame," athletics director Terry Driscoll tells us.
"We view induction into this group as the highest individual honor for a former William & Mary athlete, and criteria for selection include both athletic excellence and citizenship. In light of Darren's recent guilty plea, we decided his removal was the right course of action."
