Report: Status of former UT RB Jalen Hurd is in limbo
Former Tennessee running back Jalen Hurd had a fascinating career in Knoxville.
Hurd played extensively as a freshman and sophomore — combing for over 2,000 yards on the ground to go along with 17 total touchdowns. As a junior heading into the 2016 season, it was assumed Hurd would content for all-conference — and perhaps even national honors.
However, a once-promising career ended in rather abrupt fashion.
Hurd struggled as a junior, and ultimately left the team midway through the season rather mysteriously. Since that point, little information has come out in regards to his future.
A recent report by radio host Jimmy Hyams indicated that Hurd is still in limbo currently:
Former UT running back Jalen Hurd has not asked UT for permission to talk to any schools nor have any schools called UT about Hurd.

Hurd could opt to transfer to another school — assuming he’d be okay with sitting out a year. He theoretically could also enter the 2017 NFL Draft.
