Tennessee senior defensive tackle Savion Williams has entered his name in the transfer portal, he announced Saturday night on Twitter prior to the Vols’ game with Arkansas.

“I am truly grateful and blessed I was given a opportunity to play at the University of Tennessee and I want to thank Coach Pruitt for all things he has taught me,” Williams said in his letter he posted to Twitter. “This 1 and a half years has been a whirlwind for me but I am truly grateful for the family that I’ve made and how much the fans embraced me since I stepped on campus.

“I’ve always been known as a hard worker and God has continued to guide my life but after careful consideration, I’ve decided that I will be putting my name in the transfer portal. I look forward to a opportunity to show my real talent.”

Williams appeared in seven games as a reserve defensive lineman last season, making seven tackles. He had only appeared in the Kentucky game this season.

The Washington D.C. native signed with the Vols out of Lackawanna College as the top-ranked junior college defensive tackle in the 247Sports Composite rankings. Williams was ranked as a four-star and the No. 14 overall player in junior college.

Tennessee kicks off with Arkansas on Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. ET on the SEC Network. The Vols are looking to snap a three-game losing streak.

  1. As a life long Tennessee football fan up in the pacific northwest I’m truly disappointed in the direction of this program. What I watched against Arkansas was unacceptable, your should not be whipped by Arkansas and Kentucky ever! Let your OC and QB coaches go immediately promote Tee to OC and make Harrison your QB going forward. There is too much talent for what we’ve had to endure.
