Butch Jones Confirms Reports Of Jalen Hurd's Transfer

The Jalen Hurd news is official.

Tennessee head coach Butch Jones has confirmed the earlier reports that claim Volunteers' running back Jalen Hurd intends to transfer out of the program.

Earlier reports stated that Hurd told his teammates on Sunday night that he was going to transfer out of the Knoxville, Tenn. program.

From ESPN:

Tennessee coach Butch Jones confirms running back Jalen Hurd will transfer. Jones met with Hurd today. "I wish him nothing but the best."

Hurd, a junior, has totaled 451 yards and three touchdowns on 122 carries so far this season.

Tennessee, meanwhile, has fallen off of a cliff, starting the season 5-0 before losing three straight games, most recently to a then 3-4 South Carolina team this weekend.

The Volunteers, a preseason top 10 team, are set to play Tennessee Tech at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tenn. this Saturday. The game will kick off at 4 p.m. E.T. on SEC Network.
