Charlottesville, Va. - Virginia football coach Mike London announced today that defensive tackle Chris Brathwaite is ineligible and currently not enrolled at the University. A native of Brooklyn, N.Y., Brathwaite completed his sophomore season in 2012.

Last year, Brathwaite appeared in all 12 games in a reserve role and led the team's defensive tackles with 41 stops. He topped the Cavaliers' defense with 10 tackles for loss. Brathwaite posted a career high nine tackles against Wake Forest. He appeared in five games during the 2011 season.

"I am disappointed that Chris did not make the commitment he needed to succeed off of the football field," London said. "If the time comes where he can return to UVa, and rejoin the team, he must do so with great enthusiasm for the things that we expect and require of our student-athletes."
