E.J. Abrams-Ward and Ramone Johnson are no longer members of Tennessee’s football team. UT said Thursday that the two were dismissed from the team for disciplinary reasons.
Abrams-Ward, a receiver from Thomasville, N.C., redshirted last season after selecting UT over North Carolina in a heated recruiting battle.
Johnson, who is from Chicago, played in six games last season as a backup offensive lineman and tight end in short-yardage situations.
Johnson was suspended during the season for a lack of academic effort and a violation of team rules.
