C.J. Reavis, expected to start on Virginia Tech’s defense, no longer was enrolled at the school Friday, a day after a student conduct hearing.

An attorney for the sophomore who appeared at the conduct hearing with him Thursday mentioned an appeal but did not elaborate.

“Without discussing the details, there is an appeal process that we are going through at this point,” Jimmy Turk said. “I expect that process to maybe exhaust itself over the next week to 10 days.”

Reavis is the second Tech football player in as many days to make headlines off the field. Suspended running back Shai McKenzie was sentenced Thursday to 15 days in jail and 50 hours of community service for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The circumstances of Reavis’ departure were murky. State law prohibits the release of student conduct committee and other student records.

Tech spokesman Mark Owczarski would only verify Reavis’ enrollment status. The reason for the student conduct hearing was not disclosed. A school athletics official would not say whether Reavis’ status with the team had changed.

“Inquiries relative to the status of ongoing student conduct matters are under purview of campus and not the Athletics Department,” the department said in a statement.

Student conduct decisions may only be appealed in the event of a denial of due process, significant and relevant new evidence or unduly harsh or arbitrary sanctions that are not consistent with conduct or case precedent.
