Tennessee Football wide receiver Brandon Johnson enters the transfer portal, and now I have to ask, will this become an issue among Vols players?
Over the past couple of weeks, Tennessee football has lost a handful of commits on the recruiting trail, as well as a couple of players enter the transfer portal. Another Vol has entered his name into the transfer portal, and this is starting to worry me. This could become more common among Tennessee players if Jeremy Pruitt can’t figure it out.
Johnson has had a decent career at Tennesse, but nothing to write home about. His departure could impact the Vols offense, though, with him being a veteran with plenty of experience with Tennessee’s offense.
Tennessee’s offense could be to blame for his lack of success as there hasn’t been much consistency coming from the quarterback position, and when there’s no consistency in the offense, it hurts everyone.
If he can find the right offense to fit into, I think he can have a really good season before taking his chances in the NFL. Johnson has had 79 receptions for 969 yards and one touchdown in his Tennessee career.
The issue here isn’t Johnson’s career or the fact that he alone is leaving. The issue is that Johnson isn’t the only player to announce he’s leaving Tennessee for another program.
There’s been a handful of Tennessee commits de-commit from the Vols after Tennessee’s continued struggles on the field.
Along with the de-commitments on the recruiting trail, Tennessee tight end Jordan Allen announced that he will be transferring from Tennessee.
This could be a way of Pruitt clearing a path for the Vols to go young and bring in a young offense next season as he plans for a few years down the road. The only issue with that is he will be in his fourth year and already rebuilding the offense.
This is typically when an offense needs to hit its stride, but for Pruitt, we could be starting from square one next year. That is if Pruitt can keep the guys that are still verbally committed to Tennessee.
