    Quarterbacks

    Riley Ferguson (2013 class) – Memphis
    2017 Season: 
    299-of-474, 4,257 yards, 38 TDs, 9 INTs, 54 carries, 22 yards, 6 TDs

    Ferguson transferred off Tennessee’s roster before the beginning of the 2014 season when it looked like he was going to be buried on the depth chart at quarterback. He sat out a season at Memphis, then he put together a great first year in 2016. He followed that up with an even more impressive 2017 season. Ferguson somehow went undrafted in the 2018 NFL Draft, and he signed an undrafted free agent deal with Tampa Bay before being waved in mid-May.

    Sheriron Jones (2015 class) – Mt. San Jacinto College (JUCO)
    2017 Season: 
    208-of-393, 2,162 yards, 17 TDs, 14 INTs, 87 carries, 345 yards, 5 TDs

    Jones transferred off the Vols’ football team twice, but he came back the first time. He originally transferred before the 2016 season and headed to Colorado, but he came back within two weeks and was able to retain all his eligibility with UT. But after the 2016 season concluded, he ended up electing to transfer and made it official. He went the junior college route and ended up at Mt. San Jacinto last season. He signed with New Mexico during the early signing period in the 2018 recruiting cycle and will play for the Lobos in 2018.
