Jordan Allen's mama keeps him from leaving Tennessee

By  | 

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- It was previously reported that Tennessee linebacker Jordan Allen would transfer away from Tennessee.

He wanted to be closer to his mother, who is battling cancer.

Saturday, though, his mother, Lisa McGee posted on Facebook, clearing everything up.

To sum up the post, McGee essentially told her son that he needed to stay at Tennessee.

She said "Mama ain't raised NO PUNK!!! Back to Tennessee it is!!!"

When mama makes a decision, it's final.

Jordan Allen is set to return to Tennessee in 2019. He had 6 tackles as a redshirt-sophomore this past season.
