KNOXVILLE, Tenn — One of Tennessee's most promising young players is considering leaving the Vols. Offensive tackle Wanya Morris, who started 14 games at left tackle for the Vols during his first two seasons in the program, has entered the NCAA transfer portal, sources told GoVols247 on Wednesday. Tennessee has had several seniors from the 2020 team enter the transfer portal in recent weeks, but the former five-star prospect is the first player from the past two classes signed by head coach Jeremy Pruitt to take a big step toward departing.

Rumors of Morris entering the transfer portal have been swirling for weeks, and a player of his talent and potential will get plenty of attention from other programs now that he can be contacted by interested coaches. Entering the transfer portal doesn't necessarily a guarantee a player will leave, and Morris has yet to address his decision publicly. If he does depart, Oklahoma could be one to watch for his services.
