Former Tennessee Linebacker Back In The Transfer Portal

Former Tennessee linebacker Quavaris Crouch entered the transfer portal after one season at Michigan State, On3 sports Matt Zenitz first reported Friday morning.

Crouch was a top-100 recruit and major commit for Jeremy Pruitt in the 2019 recruiting class. The Vols beat out Clemson and Michigan to win the North Carolina native’s services.

Crouch didn’t have a set in stone position coming into college. The Charlotte native shined at running back before a knee injury in high school and Pruitt and his staff convinced him his football future was on the defensive side of the ball.

The 6-foot-2, 230 pound prospect recorded 28 tackles as a pass rushing outside linebacker as a freshman before moving to inside linebacker ahead of his sophomore season. Crouch earned a co-starting role alongside with Jeremy Banks on his way to recording 57 tackles and forcing two fumbles.

While Crouch’s numbers increased, the big linebacker struggled his first season playing inside linebacker, especially against the pass.

Crouch entered the transfer portal during the drama revolving around Pruitt’s final days in Knoxville, eventually landing at Michigan State.

Crouch’s Big 10 home seemed beneficial for the linebacker, allowing him to earn serious playing time and play against more run heavy attacks.

The North Carolina native’s junior season was by far his most productive with Crouch recording 75 tackles and two sacks.

However, Crouch opted for another fresh start leaving the Michigan State program after one year. After transferring last offseason, Crouch will likely have to sit out a season.
