Sources confirm to CBS19 that Defensive End Jeffrey Fitzgerald is leaving the team effective immediately. Fitzgerald informed teammates Thursday of his decision. Reasons for his departure have not yet been released.
Fitzgerald, who was supposed to be the heir apparent to Chris Long at the defensive end position, leaves the program at an unfortunate time. Starting quarterback Jameel Sewell and cornerback Chris Cook both left the program for academic reasons. Unlike the four players not enrolled at UVa, as far as reports indicate, Fitzgerald is still in school at this time. Stay tuned to CBS19 for the very latest on this developing story.
