The decision affects only a handful of players who were in their final season of eligibility in 2022. One of those players -- receiver Billy Kemp IV -- has already declared for the NFL draft. Anthony Johnson, a first-team All-ACC cornerback, just completed his sixth season and accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.
Christopher Darnell Jones Jr., a UVA student and former member of the football team who was on the trip, has been charged with three counts of second-degree murder and the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
Prosecutors have also charged him with two counts of malicious wounding and additional gun-related charges related to shooting Hollins and Morgan. He is being held without bail in a Charlottesville jail. There is a case status hearing scheduled for Thursday.
