Tennessee has added another tight end from the transfer portal. Still needing more depth at the position, the Volunteers picked up a commitment from former Alabama tight end Miles Kitselman late on Friday night.
Kitselman is a JUCO product with one season of eligibility remaining. He appeared in 13 games for Alabama last season, playing mainly on special teams. Kitselman joined the Crimson Tide ahead of the 2022 season. He signed with Alabama out of Hutchinson Community College.
Kitselman checks in at 6-5, 250 pounds. He joins former Notre Dame tight end Holden Staes in Tennessee’s transfer portal class, as Alec Abeln and Josh Heupel rework that room. Tennessee will be replacing seniors Jacob Warren and McCallan Castles next season. Former four-star prospect Ethan Davis is expected to step into a significant role alongside of Staes — but that’s about all Tennessee had. Kitselman brings a little insurance and experience to the equation.
Tennessee also signed three-star Cole Harrison in the class of 2024. He will develop with Emmanuel Okoye, who joined Tennessee’s 2023 class late after playing in the NFL Academy in Europe.
Kitselman is Tennessee’s sixth transfer portal addition so far this offseason.
