The college football transfer portal will officially open up on Monday, Dec. 5, paving the way for a massive shake-up to team rosters around the country.
Since the end of the regular season last Saturday, players have already been announcing their intent to enter the portal with the hope of finding greener pastures on the other side.
While a small handful of Tennessee players have gone ahead and made the announcements themselves, there is still plenty of expectation that more players will be on the way, especially as that Dec. 5 date draws closer.
According to On3 Sports’ Matt Zenitz on Wednesday, freshman running back Justin Williams-Thomas and redshirt-sophomore running back Len’Neth Whitehead are both expected to make their announcements sometime soon and enter the portal when it opens.
Here’s a continuous look at which members of the Tennessee football team have officially announced their intentions to enter the transfer portal and explore what options are on the table.
