Late last year, former 5-star recruit Aubrey Solomon made his plans to move on from the Michigan Wolverines.

Solomon spent just a few days on the transfer market before announcing his transfer destination. He didn't have to wait long before revaling that he'd further his career in the SEC at Tennessee.

"Thank you Michigan professors for opening my mind, fans for being the foundation for the players and encouraging us good and bad, teammates for uplifting each other...With that being said, I will be attending the University of Tennessee," he announced in December 2018.

After a few months in the Volunteers program, Solomon received some great news this afternoon.

According to a report from Rivals, the NCAA granted him immediate eligibility to play for the Volunteers this season.

Solomon was the No. 23 overall recruit in the country coming out of high school. He was the No. 2 defensive tackle recruit and the No. 2 player from the state of Georgia.

After spending a few years learning from Don Brown and the Wolverines, he'll get a fresh start at Tennessee.

The Volunteers enjoyed a solid first season under new head coach Jeremy Pruitt - who led Alabama's defense before landing at Tennessee.

Stay tuned for the latest.
