This team has unfinished business, and we are going to make Tennessee grow even more. I just want to say thank you to the coaching staff, my teammates, my family, all of Vol Nation and God for making this dream a reality.”

Cimaglia’s decision comes a day after All-SEC offensive lineman Trey Smith also decided to stay at Tennessee for his senior season and former Freshman All-American offensive lineman Cade Mays transferred from Georgia to Rocky Top.
