Former Tennessee offensive lineman Jahmir Johnson transfers to Texas A&M
A former Tennessee football offensive lineman is staying in the SEC.
Jahmir Johnson, who entered the NCAA transfer portal Jan. 20, announced Saturday his intentions to transfer to Texas A&M.
"Past three years, the University of Tennessee has become my home," Johnson wrote on Twitter. "After much consideration with my close friends and family, I will be deciding to transfer to Texas A & M University to continue to play football in the SEC at a high level while also pursuing my graduate degree."
He will have one year of eligibility remaining after joining the Vols as a junior college transfer in 2018. He started 11 games in his first season with Tennessee, playing primarily at left guard.
In 2019, he was hampered by injuries and made six appearances and one start. He battled with Wanya Morris, who transferred to Oklahoma, for the starting left tackle spot in 2020.
He sat out for the final three games.
Tennessee also will have to replace starting offensive lineman Trey Smith and Brandon Kennedy, who both entered the NFL Draft.
