According to the William and Mary athletic department, junior linebacker Jake Trantin has withdrawn from school for the fall semester and will not take the field for the Tribe (5-1, 3-1 CAA) for the remainder of the season.

Trantin, a preseason All-American, has withdrawn due to family reasons.

“Jake and his family have decided it was in his best interests for them to be together at this time,“ Head Coach Jimmye Laycock said in a statement. “It was a difficult decision for all involved, but he has our full support.”

It is unclear whether Trantin, who has already redshirted at the College, will return next season.

Trantin did not appear in any games for the College this season. He was sidelined earlier this year with a concussion, and then was out for unspecified reasons.

Trantin’s middle linebacker position has been filled admirably by sophomore Dante Cook, who has one forced fumble and two interception returns for touchdowns in five games.
