Tennessee defensive back Marquill Osborne announced Friday on Twitter that he plans to transfer to another school.
"After much prayer and discussions with my family, I feel it is in my best interest to transfer from the University of Tennessee, furthering my academic/football career at another school," Osborne said in a tweet. "This decision was not easy and comes with deep regret. I have learned from my experiences at the University of Tennessee and it has left a lasting impact on my development and I will always be grateful."
Osborne appeared in ten games in his junior season of 2018 but did not start. He blocked a punt and returned it for a touchdown in the win over ETSU and intercepted two passes in the Vols win over no. 11 Kentucky.
The North Carolina native came to Tennessee as a four-star recruit and the 17th ranked cornerback in the class of 2016, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He played in 30 games in his three-year Vol career, recording 30 tackles, two tackles for loss, a sack and two interceptions.
Osborne is the second Vol to announce plans to transfer this offseason, joining quarterback Will McBride.
Tennessee finished 5-7 (2-6 SEC) in Jeremy Pruitt's first season as head coach.
