Freshman defensive tackle [tag]Jarvis Humphrey[/tag] has been forced to leave school due to a kidney condition. There is no word on the seriousness of his condition or if there is any chance Jarvis will return to UT. The young man’s health is obviously the primary concern.

From the official UT site:

Longhorn redshirt freshman defensive tackle Jarvis Humphrey has withdrawn from classes at The University of Texas due to the continuation of a medical condition. Doctors identified a concern with his kidney during a pre-participating physical last year which sidelined him for much of his time at Texas, including all of 2009 spring drills.

“Jarvis is a great young man,” said head coach Mack Brown. “His health is our number one priority and has been since his condition was identified when he arrived at Texas. We will continue to help him any way we can.”

We’ll keep Jarvis in our thoughts and hope for a speedy recovery for him.
