Tennessee lands former Tulane WR Chris Brazzell


NCAA Football: Tulane at Memphis Petre Thomas-USA TODAY Sports

Tennessee has made a big splash in the transfer portal tonight, landing former Tulane wide receiver Chris Brazzell. The 6-5 receiver is coming off of a big freshman season, where he posted 711 yards and five touchdowns.

Tennessee will be looking to replace Ramel Keyton and is still waiting to hear from Bru McCoy on his final season of eligibility. Squirrel White will return, along with Dont’e Thornton, Chas Nimrod, Kaleb Webb and Nathan Leacock. Tennessee will also add five-star receiver Mike Matthews and four-star receiver Braylon Staley. That’s quite the wide receiver room for Nico Iamaleava, who will assume the starting job at quarterback in 2024. It’s going to be interesting to see how the starting roles take shape, especially if McCoy returns.

Brazzell picked Tennessee over offers from Utah, Colorado, Washington and others. According to 247Sports, Brazzell is the 11th ranked receiver in the transfer portal. He will have three seasons of eligibility remaining.

Tennessee has now picked up four players from the transfer portal. Brazzell joins tight end Holden Staes, safety Jakobe Thomas and cornerback Jermod McCoy.
