Tennessee has made another offer in the transfer portal, looking to get in the hunt for former Texas A&M offensive lineman Remington Strickland. The former four-star prospect announced his intentions to hit the portal on November 30th, announcing that he would have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
One day later, Strickland announced that Tennessee had sent him an offer.

Strickland was a top 300 overall prospect in the 2021 class, coming out of Sugar Land, Texas. He checks in at 6-4, 300 pounds, and could provide Tennessee help at any of the three interior offensive line spots.
He redshirted during the 2021 season, then appeared in nine games for the Aggies over the next two seasons. Strickland did not make any starts during his time in College Station.
Houston, Illinois, Cal, Arizona State, Boston College, Vanderbilt and others are among the early offers for Strickland since entering the portal.
Tennessee could get center Cooper Mays back for another year, along with guard Javontez Spraggins. However, veteran Ollie Lane will exit and reserve guard Mo Clipper has already hit the portal. More certainly could follow. We’ve seen how important numbers are up front, so keeping that room stocked full of capable bodies is a must. Tennessee did that with John Campbell and Andrej Karic last year, and they’ll likely do it again during this cycle.
