We’re in the middle of transfer portal season, and the Tennessee Volunteers are once again active. With a need for future depth at the receiver, Tennessee has added former Nebraska receiver Miles Jones.

Per 247 Sports, Jones will be a walk-on at Tennessee.

Jones signed with Nebraska as a part of their 2018 class. The 5-9, 170 pound receiver was rated as a three-star prospect coming out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Jones took visits to South Carolina and Florida State before ending up with the Volunteers. He will likely be ineligible for the 2020 season, but should have two years left beginning in 2021.

Jones appeared in just one game for Nebraska, coming in 2018. He caught one pass and also rushed the ball once, totalling 26 yards of total offense. His fit at Tennessee could end up being somewhat of a hybrid — a guy that can handle some receiver work and some passing down work at running back. Jones could also have a return role at Tennessee.

During the 2018 cycle, Jones held offers from Wisconsin, Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, Kentucky and several others. He was the 576th ranked player in the class, according to 247 Sports.
