Reavis was a 4-star recruit and one of the top players in the state in 2014. He played as a true freshman this past season, and was atop the depth chart at rover at the conclusion of spring practice. Torrian Gray was very high on his future.
However, he is no longer enrolled at Virginia Tech following a student conduct hearing yesterday.
“Without discussing the details, there is an appeal process that we are going through at this point,” lawyer Jimmy Turk told the Roanoke Times. “I expect that process to maybe exhaust itself over the next week to 10 days.”
Because of privacy issues, the reasons for yesterday’s hearing have not been announced. He is not facing any criminal charges.
There probably won’t be any more news until the appeal process is over. Even if Reavis is reinstated, we don’t know how this will affect his status with the football team.
My personal thoughts: this is a big loss. Reavis looked like a big-time football player in the spring. I think he was going to be a three-year starter and an All-ACC caliber player. Desmond Frye will do a good job most likely, but if Reavis is done for good then Torrian Gray’s options are more limited for this coming season.
