Florida football has lost a member of its linebacking corps, as the team announced on Monday morning. Redshirt junior Matt Rolin is no longer a part of the football team, as confirmed by Florida via their Twitter account.

The redshirt junior out of Ashburn, Va. was a four-star recruit, and the Nation’s No. 13 outside linebacker according to 247Sports. Rolin tore his ACL in his left knee as a true freshman in August 2013, the same knee that he sustained an injury to in high school, and he missed the 2013 and 2014 seasons entirely due to injury. He played in the last three games for the Gators last season, recording 11 total tackles.

Florida head coach Jim McElwain is expected to address Rolin leaving later today.
