DEVELOPING STORY: Two Tennessee Players To Leave Program
Neither Reid or Jones attended practice this afternoon, along with Will Ignont who also failed to make the trip to Gainesville last Saturday in the Vols 34-3 blowout loss to the Gators. We at Volunteer Roadshow have decided to avoid speculating on Ignont’s situation until definitive information emerges one way or the other.
Reid was 4th on UT’s Inside Linebacker depth chart landing behind Henry To’oto’o, Daniel Buituli, and Jeremy Banks leading many to speculate that the move was made due to a lack of playing time. As for Jones, it is a similar story as he racked up very little playing time buried in a loaded WR Core. It is worth noting that both players may withdraw their name from the Transfer Portal at any time per the NCAA’s transfer rules.
This story will be updated as we learn more about the situation.
