Vanderbilt loses pair of defenders to NCAA transfer portal
The odds already appear stacked against Vanderbilt heading into the 10-game conference schedule and now the Commodores will be forced to deal with depth issues following the departure of two more players from the program.
Starting safety Tae Daley and reserve defensive back Tre Douglas are the latest two Vanderbilt players to announce their decisions to leave the program. Daley’s decision to enter the NCAA transfer portal was first reported by Matt Zenitz of AL.com while Douglas announced his decision on Twitter.
During his three seasons in Nashville, Daley made 108 tackles, three interceptions and 1.5 sacks, making 17 starts during that time. Douglas has only one appearance during his time with the Commodores.
Vanderbilt has had five players decided to opt-out this season and another two transfer out of the program this offseason following Vanderbilt’s 3-9 campaign last fall.
