Former Tennessee QB Jarrett Guarantano announces transfer destination
Jarrett Guarantano is heading west.
The former Tennessee quarterback, who entered the transfer portal following UT’s loss to Texas A&M, announced Friday that he has transferred to Washington State. He shared the news on his Twitter account.
Guarantano graduated from Tennessee in December 2019. He will have immediate eligibility in 2021. Guarantano would be in the sixth year of his NCAA career. Ahead of the 2020 college football season, the NCAA stated the season would not count toward the “play 4 in 5” eligibility rules and all players would enter the 2021 season in the same standing as they did this fall.
Out of Bergen Catholic High School in New Jersey, Guarantano was rated the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback prospect of the 2016 class on the 247Sports Composite. He originally committed to Tennessee on April 15, 2015.
Guarantano never quite lived up to his high 4-star billing. He was benched this season, appearing in only 7 games. Guarantano’s last appearance came against Auburn on Nov. 21.
Over the last four seasons, Guarantano appeared in 41 games. He was 494-of-808 passing, a 61.1 completion percentage, for 6,174 yards, 38 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. Guarantano also rushed for 5 TDs, including 4 this season.
Guarantano’s most productive year was 2019 when he threw for 2,158 yards, 16 touchdowns and 8 interceptions.
