Jaguars’ Head Coach Urban Meyer Has Been Fired
Navy Shuler — the son of Tennessee legend Heath Shuler — is transferring to Tennessee from Appalachian State, the quarterback announced on Twitter Sunday.
The Arden, North Carolina native ranked as a three-star prospect coming out of high school at the Christ School in North Carolina. Shuler committed to App State over Memphis, Coastal Carolina, Charlotte, Liberty, Tulane, Duke and Wake Forest.
The 5-foot-11, 195 pound quarterback spent two years in Boone but didn’t see any playing time before deciding to enter the transfer portal.
Shuler is likely to be a preferred walk on for the Vols and has four years of eligibility remaining.
Tennessee currently has two scholarship quarterbacks on roster — Hendon Hooker and Joe Milton — and four-star Tayven Jackson will early enroll during the spring semester and will be ready to go through spring practice.
Navy’s father Heath was a two-year starter for Tennessee in the early 90s, throwing for 4,089 yards, 36 touchdowns and 12 interceptions adding 383 yards and 14 touchdowns on the ground.
Shuler finished runner up in the 1993 Heisman Trophy before declaring for the NFL Draft after the season. The Washington Redskins selected Shuler with the third pick in the draft.
