VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Former Ocean Lakes football star Tayvion Land and his Liberty teammate, Kei’Trel Clark, have announced that they'll be entering the transfer portal due to "racial insensitivity".

Land make the announcement Monday afternoon on Twitter, where he said, "My short time spent with the athletic department and most professors at Liberty University was much appreciated as it helped me improve my skills, gain new experiences, and meet a diverse group of friends. Unfortunately, due to the racial insensitivity displayed by leadership at Liberty University, I have decided to enter my name into the transfer portal and no longer be a student-athlete at Liberty University.

"I pray that I am able to be provided with a opportunity at a new school that respects my culture and provides a comfortable environment. Bless it! #BLM"

Land played in 11 games during the 2019 season as a true freshman, totaling 23 tackles. He was the highest rated recruit in Flames history.
