Proctor announces plans to transfer from UVA

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- Virginia has brought in several graduate transfers to bolster their offensive line in recent seasons. Now the Wahoos are losing a lineman via that same route.

Junior RJ Proctor announced Thursday afternoon on Twitter that he plans to play his fifth and final season of college eligibility at another school. After working back from a preseason knee injury, Proctor started six games at left guard for UVA this season, including Saturday's Belk Bowl victory against South Carolina.


After redshirting in 2015, Proctor started 12 games for UVA the past three seasons -- eight at left guard and four at right guard. According to his Twitter post, Proctor has completed work toward his bachelors degree at UVA, making him eligible to play immediately at his next school.
