BREAKING: Aubrey Solomon Ruled Eligible
Tennessee fans have just gotten the word that they have been waiting on all offseason. Aubrey Solomon will be playing football this year.
This is massive news for the Volunteers as they have a thin D-Line position following a key injury to Emmit Gooden. Solomon will be a key for the Volunteer’s success in 2019 and many speculate that he could be the difference in many of the toss up games on Tennessee’s schedule. Solomon’s case was one of the most bizarre we’ve ever witnessed, it took 249 days for the NCAA to finally rule him eligible. You did not read that wrong, that is not a typo. Aubrey Solomon announces his intentions to transfer from Tennessee to Michigan on December 27, 2018. Better late than never I suppose.
Solomon committed to Michigan over Georgia when he first entered the world of College Football. After a few unfortunate injuries, Solomon decided to get a change of scenery and take his talents to Knoxville which left a bad taste in Michigan’s mouth. Solomon is a former 5-Star recruit and all of the top tier programs across the nation wanted to bring him in. One of those teams is one of the Vols biggest rivals. Georgia was considered the front runner along with some other top tier teams for Solomon, and when he committed to Tennessee it shocked a lot of folks.
Regardless of how we got here and how long it took, we finally know that Solomon will be eligible. It is a massive addition for a thin D-Line for the Vols.
