Virginia Football: DT Justin Renfrow not on updated roster

Peter Casey-USA TODAY Sports

Renfrow's departure marks another loss in a tough off-season for the Virginia football program.

UPDATE: The Athletic Department has confirmed that Justin Renfrow has graduated and will not play for Virginia this season.

If an updated team roster is accurate, Virginia's thin defensive line may have gotten even thinner. Rising senior Justin Renfrow doesn't appear on the roster. Renfrow redshirted the 2009 season and was thus eligible to play as a fifth-year senior in 2013. It doesn't look like that will happen. Renfrow marks the 10th player with eligibility remaining to leave the Virginia football program this off-season.

Without Renfrow, Virginia will enter the 2013 campaign with only two defensive tackles with legitimate playing experience. Senior Brent Urban and sophomore David Dean appear set to start. Behind them, Virginia will rely on sophomore Marco Jones, redshirt freshman Andre Miles-Redmond, and true freshmen Tyrell Chavis and Donta Wilkins. Both Chavis and Wilkins come to Charlottesville highly-regarded.

As we recently wrote, Renfrow came to Virginia with some promise but only contributed 18 tackles during his career. His best game may have been his last, when he preformed ably as a back-up defensive tackle against Virginia Tech. Renfrow's presumed departure marks another blow in a tough off-season for the Wahoo defensive line, which lost standout Christopher Brathwaite to eligibility issues in January. Brathwaite is rumored to be aiming for a 2014 comeback, but that obviously won't help the Cavaliers this fall. Stay tuned to Streaking The Lawn for more Virginia football roster news.
