Tennessee Adds Former Michigan LB William Mohan

    by -

    Tennessee continues to look towards the transfer portal for help at certain positions, which they benefited from on Thursday. Michigan transfer LB William Mohan announced on twitter that he was transferring to Tennessee.

    Coming out of high school, Mohan was a 3-star prospect with offers from multiple Power-5 schools. He signed with Michigan as part of the 2020 recruiting class. The connection with Brian Jean-Mary, who now coaches LB’s at Tennessee was a huge factor in Mohan coming to Knoxville.

    The Vols have now added another piece to the linebacker room, as Mohan will join former Texas linebacker Juwan Mitchell. If there was one spot that the Vols needed depth, it was linebacker. As the coaching staff continued looking for players that could be part of the program for multiple years, Mohan seemed like the perfect fit.

    The Vols will be getting Aaron Willis back, who missed all of spring due to suspension. So, adding multiple linebackers to fit into the system, with a player like Jeremy Banks, will only help this defensive roster.

    Mohan played in one game for the Wolverines in 2020 and recorded one tackle. The Brooklyn, N.Y., native is 6-foot-1, 205 pounds and should give the Vols defensive staff multiple ways to use him this season and beyond. He entered the portal in April and will have four years of eligibility.

    Tennessee has continued to look for players that give them a future beyond the 2021 season and Mohan fits this perfectly. He has time to continue growing and the relationship with Jean-Mary is an added bonus for this group. Look for Mohan to enroll in June.

    The Vols coaching staff has used the transfer portal to their advantage over the last few months and today was another example.
