Three football players formerly enrolled at Liberty University announced Monday that they will leave the prominent Virginia-based evangelical Christian institution, with two of them citing “racial insensitivity” or “cultural” incompetence of the school’s leadership.

Sophomore cornerbacks Kei'Trel Clark and Tayvion Land, as well as senior linebacker Waylen Cozad, took to Twitter to announce their decisions to enter the college football transfer portal. Clark and Land, who are African American, cited cultural and racial issues.

In his statement, Land said that while he “appreciated” much of his time and “most” of his professors at Liberty, he is departing due to “the racial insensitivity displayed by leadership.”
