An SEC freshman quarterback has announced his intentions to transfer.

Will McBride, a freshman quarterback at Tennessee, announced late this evening that he's decided to transfer out of the Volunteers' program.

The dual-threat QB was a member of the 2017 recruiting class.

"I've decided it's best for me to transfer from the University of Tennessee," McBride wrote on Twitter. "I've learned a lot in the two years I've spent in Knoxville. I will always appreciate the memories I made and the relationships I built. Tennessee is a special place with special people. With that being said, I'm looking forward to furthering my academic/football career at another school."

Here's the full announcement:

The Texas native threw 17 of 40 passes for 152 yards and 1 touchdown with the Vols.
