Touted lineman to transfer from Tennessee

Butch Jones confirmed touted sophomore lineman Jason Carr will transfer from Tennessee. Carr played in three games and made just one tackle last season.

The Memphis native signed with Tennessee as a defensive end, only to be switched to defensive tackle when he set foot on campus. Carr also played some offensive line this spring.

Carr was a part of Jones’ first signing class and was the third highest-rated player the Vols signed in 2013, but he struggled to adjust to the college game. Carr moving to offensive tackle this spring was pretty much the tell-tale sign that he wasn’t developing properly along the defensive line.

Tennessee needs offensive and defensive linemen, but Carr won’t be one of them in 2014.
