Breaking News: Super Talented Vols Star Confirm He Wants To Leave

According to Matt Zenitz of 247Sports, Tennessee is allegedly expecting to lose a portion of its talented defensive line room. It is currently anticipated that Jayson Jenkins, a former New Jersey three-star recruit, will use the transfer portal.
Jenkins was a member of the recruiting class for 2022. Prior to his redshirt sophomore season, he made six appearances for the Volunteers in the previous campaign and was attempting to break into the starting lineup. The 280-pound defensive lineman, who is 6-6, will now search for a fresh chance.

During spring ball, Jenkins created some excitement and received compliments from defensive line coach Rodney Garner.

“Jayson is merely a man with a blue collar job,” Garner stated in March. “He simply brings his lunchbox to work every day and works hard; you’ve watched him grow tremendously, little by little. Since he hasn’t received anything from anyone, he has really made measures to be able to contribute to this defense, and in my opinion, this has earned him the respect of his colleagues.

He takes great pride in it. This is his favorite place. He desires to be present. We had another young man leave previously and go off to another school and do extremely well for them, so I’m sure he could have left and gone somewhere and probably would have had a lot more success with that.

We are therefore pleased that he is remaining and look forward to his increased involvement this year.
Since those remarks almost a month ago, a noticeable change in circumstances has occurred.

Featuring Omari Thomas, Bryson Eason, Elijah Simmons, Dominic Bailey, Omarr Norman-Lott, Tyre West, Daevin Hobbs, and Jaxson Moi, Tennessee still has a legitimate opportunity to go ten deep up front. Jenkins’ choice is likely influenced by the fact that he was expected to be low on the pecking order once more.

Jenkins joins linebacker Elijah Herring as the second defense to depart Tennessee after the spring.
