Less than 48 hours after Tennessee’s upset victory over No. 18 Kentucky, the Volunteers’ roster appears to be one spot smaller.
Tennessee linebacker Morven Joseph has officially entered the transfer portal as of Monday, Nov. 8.
“With a heavy heart, serious consideration, and a long talk with my family, I would like to announce that I will be entering my name into the transfer portal to explore other opportunities,” Joseph said on Twitter on Monday.

In the 2021 season, Joseph has appearances in two games, against Bowling Green and Tennessee Tech. Additionally, Joseph has one tackle on the year, which came against Tennessee Tech. Joseph has gone back and forth on the linebacker core this year, starting out as an outside linebacker before getting moved to the inside.
Originally a four-star recruit in the class of 2020, Joseph committed to Tennessee in December of 2019. However, before his Tennessee commitment, Joseph was committed to Florida State but backed out 12 days before flipping to Tennessee.
As a recruit, Joseph had offers from many other SEC teams, such as Auburn, Florida, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Mississippi State, and Texas A&M.
