Tennessee will reportedly be replacing a starter on the offensive line.
AL.com’s Matt Zenitz is reporting that starting RT Drew Richmond has entered his name into the transfer portal. Simply being listed in the portal does not bind a player to leave, but college football insider Brett McMurphy is reporting that Richmond will indeed be leaving the program.
Listed at 6-5, 309 pounds, the Memphis native recently completed his redshirt junior season with the Volunteers. In the class of 2015, Richmond was rated 4-stars, the No. 2 recruit from Tennessee, No. 3 offensive tackle and No. 56 prospect overall nationally on the 247Sports Composite.
Zenitz also reported that TE Eli Wolf, who started multiple games for the Volunteers, has entered his name into the transfer portal.
