KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -Tennessee’s outside linebacker Deandre Johnson announced Saturday night he will be transferring to The University of Miami.

“As I reflect on my time at Tennessee, I am grateful for experiences that have helped me grow. I want to thank Coach Pruitt and the entire staff for pushing me to develop as a player and as a man,” said Johnson in a Tweet. “To my teammates, the memories we share will last a lifetime. Thank you all for the support and motivation these past four years. I also want to thank the academic team for pushing me to earn my college degree. With that being said, I have decided to graduate transfer to the University of Miami.

Tennessee’s Deandre Johnson was named SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week following the Vols win over South Carolina on Saturday, Sept. 26.

The outside linebacker recorded a career-high in tackles (6), sacks (2.5) and a forced fumble.

Johnson’s sacks were the most by a Vol since Darrell Taylor recorded four against Kentucky in 2018.
