UW football roster updates: Marcus Farria out, Vita Vea in at defensive line

There are two notable changes to the new Washington football roster handed out to the media today.

Sophomore defensive end Marcus Farria, who had 2.5 sacks as a true freshman last season, was dismissed last week for what coach Chris Petersen says was a “violation of team standards.”

With Farria out, the Huskies have added one defensive lineman: Vita Vea, a 6-foot-5, 330-pounder from Milpitas (Calif.) High School in the Bay Area.

Vea, a former three-star recruit from the Class of 2013, did not sign with an FBS program out of high school, reportedly because of academic eligibility issues.

Here’s a highlight video from Vea in high school.
