Kentucky dismissed defensive back Vito Tisdale on Tuesday for violating team rules.

“We have no additional comment on the matter,” Kentucky said in a tweet.

Tisdale missed the entire 2022 season recovering from a torn ACL he sustained during spring practice a year ago.

Tisdale had 21 tackles and a sack in nine games (two starts) for Kentucky in the 2021 season. He appeared in 19 games overall.

“Thank you for allowing me to pursue my academic and my athletic career at this prestigious university,” Tisdale posted, in part, on Twitter.
