KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A University of Tennessee spokeswoman says two suspended football players and the alleged victim of an off-campus rape are not enrolled at the school this semester.

Spokeswoman Karen Ann Simsen told The Tennessean (https://tnne.ws/1x0D8x5) that player Michael Williams, who is in his sophomore year, isn’t registered for classes. Simsen said linebacker A.J. Johnson, who has completed his football eligibility, graduated after the fall semester.

She said the alleged 19-year-old victim also is no longer enrolled.

Simsen declined to release any details on the circumstances around the enrollment statuses of Williams and the alleged victim due to federal student privacy laws.

No charges have been brought against the athletes, who were suspended from team-related activities after the allegations.

The Knox County prosecutor has said the allegations are under review.
