Tennessee football offered Oregon State transfer corner Jermod McCoy on Wednesday morning, the underclassmen corner shared on X.

The Vols join a long list of teams to offer the Oregon State cornerback since he entered the transfer portal last week. McCoy’s list of offers includes Arkansas, Auburn, Colorado, Florida, Houston, Louisville, Michigan State, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Oregon, SMU, Southern Cal, TCU, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Utah, Washington, and West Virginia.

McCoy totaled 16 tackles, seven pass deflections and two interceptions as a freshman last season and still has three years of eligibility this season.

McCoy ranks as the seventh best defensive back that has entered the transfer portal this offseason according to the 247sports transfer portal rankings.

The Whitehouse, Texas native earned a 64.1 PFF grade in his freshman season at Oregon State. For reference, McCoy’s grade would have ranked third amongst Tennessee cornerbacks last season behind both Kamal Hadden and Gabe Jeudy-Lally but ahead of Doneiko Slaughter and the rest of the cornerback room.

Opponents targeted McCoy 47 times and the 6-foot freshman allowed 27 catches for 420 yards. McCoy struggled against stout passing offenses Washington and Oregon as well as Washington State.

Tennessee football is in desperate need of adding cornerbacks to its roster this offseason. Hadden is out of eligibility while Jeudy-Lally hasn’t announced whether or not he’s return for his super senior season. Five different Tennessee corners have entered the transfer portal this offseason including Slaughter and Tamarion McDonald. The Vols are in need of adding bodies to their secondary ahead of the 2024 season.
