And then there were three.

It was reported Tuesday that a pair of Tennessee football players, wide receiver Jacquez Jones and linebacker Shanon Reid, had already placed their names into the NCAA transfer database.  Additionally, linebacker Will Ignont was not at practice Tuesday, so his status with the football program moving forward was unclear.

Wednesday, that status was cleared up as head coach Jeremy Pruitt confirmed that Ignont has left his football team as well.

Ignont, who started the first two games of the 2019 season, didn’t travel with UT to Gainesville for the Week 4 loss to Florida.  He set a career-high with seven tackles in the opener, then bested that with eight the following weekend.

A four-star 2017 signee, Ignont played in six games as a true freshman.  This past season, the Alabama native started two of the 12 games in which he played.
