KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee football got a big pickup for their backfield on Wednesday.

The Vols got a commitment from transfer running back Lyn-J Dixon and he is expected to join the team soon and play this season, according to WBIR's sources.

He played four years with Clemson and totaled 1,420 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns. This past spring, he was with West Virginia but left the program.

Out of high school as a four-star prospect, he committed to the Vols as a part of the Class of 2018 before decommitting.

It's a big addition for Tennessee after it was announced this week that running back Len'Neth Whitehead was ruled out for the season due to an injury.
