The University of Virginia football program announced 17 fourth and fifth-year players are returning to Charlottesville for the 2021 season. Among the 17 are nine student athletes who would have exhausted their final year of eligibility in 2020 if not for a one-time NCAA rule that provided a “blanket waiver” allowing fall student athletes to “receive both an additional year of eligibility and an additional year in which to complete it” because of the global pandemic

Because of the NCAA’s ruling, Mandy Alonso (DL), Adeeb Atariwa (DL), Joey Blount (S), Elliott Brown (OLB), Danny Caracciolo (LS), De’Vante Cross (DB), Chris Glaser (OL), Nick Grant (CB) and Ra’Shaun Henry (WR) are returning for one more season in the Virginia program.
