Tennessee’s offseason competition at punter just got more interesting.

After losing punter Joe Doyle this offseason, Jeremy Pruitt’s Tennessee program has added Connecticut graduate transfer punter/holderĀ Brett Graham. Graham announced the news on Monday evening.

The Volunteers do return Paxton Brooks, who assumed the team’s starting punting duties last season.

Graham has seen action in 36 games for UConn during his college career. In addition to his punting duties with the UConn program, Graham has also served as UConn’s primary holder. He started all 12 games for UConn back in 2017 as the team’s primary punter.

He will have one season of eligibility remaining in Knoxville.

Coming out of State College Area High School, Graham was named First Team All-Mid Penn Conference tight end and punter.

The former UConn punter has had 63 attempts during his college career forĀ 2,442 yards with a long punt of 61 yards. He’s punted the ball further than 50 yards seven times and downed 20 punts inside the 20 during his college career.
