    When Jalen Reeves-Maybin announced that he’d be out for the season following shoulder surgery earlier in the year, he left the door open to potentially pursuing a medical hardship and a fifth year in Knoxville.

    When he was honored at Senior Day against Missouri, it appeared that his UT career was over.

    He made that decision to head on to the NFL Draft official on Saturday when he signed with an agent, ending any chance of him retaining his NCAA eligibility.

    Reeves-Maybin, who appeared in just four games to the shoulder injury, concluded his his four-year career at Tennessee with 240 tackles, eight sacks, 27 TFLs and he had a hand in seven turnovers as well.

    He is rated as the No. 10 OLB prospect for the 2017 draft, according to NFLDraftScout.com.
