Former Tennessee football player decommits, continues seeking transfer destination
Savion Williams remains on the market.
The former Tennessee defensive lineman tweeted on Wednesday that he was decommitting from Florida International and reopening his recruitment.
Williams signed with Tennessee as a junior college transfer ahead of the 2019 season. He entered the transfer portal in November, announcing his decision on Nov. 7, the same day the Vols played a road game against Arkansas.
"I look forward to a real opportunity to show my talent," Williams tweeted in that November announcement.
The 6-foot-4, 290-pound Williams was the No. 1-ranked junior college defensive tackle in the 2019 class. His offer list included Georgia, Nebraska and West Virginia, but he never gained much playing time with the Vols.
He made five tackles in UT's season-opening loss to Georgia State in 2019 before making two tackles the following week against BYU. Those seven tackles accounted for his total in 1½ seasons at Tennessee.
He appeared in nine games during his Tennessee career, including two this season.
