KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Tennessee wide receiver Drae Bowles is leaving the program, a university spokesperson confirmed to WVLT early Sunday evening.
Multiple media outlets report that Bowles will transfer to UT-Chattanooga. He'll be eligible to play immediately for the Mocs.
Bowles (6'0", 205 lb) was a member of the Vols' 2012 signing class.
He was a four-star prospect out of Jackson Christian HS in Jackson, Tenn. His senior year, Rivals rated Bowles the second best prospect in the state of Tennessee and the 19th best overall receiver.
However, once at Tennessee, Bowles saw limited playing time. He was redshirted in 2012. The following season, he played in eleven games, but all on special teams.
This year, he saw action against only Utah State and Arkansas State. He'll leave Tennessee without a reception.
Since the Vanderbilt game, Bowles becomes the sixth Vols that played this past year to leave the program. (freshmen Dwayne Hendrix, Daniel Helm, Derrell Scott, D'Andre Payne and sophomore Jaylen Miller are the others.)
