The Tennessee Volunteers are a favorite to win the SEC East this season and it looks like they are doing a good job preparing for a big run. However, they will move forward without a piece of their depth chart as tight end Neiko Creamer has decided to transfer.
Head coach Butch Jones confirmed Creamer’s intentions to transfer Wednesday night. The coach said he and his staff will help the young man find his next home.
There was no reason given as to why he was leaving the school, but it looks like playing time seems to be a good reason for his departure. Creamer came to Tennessee as a three-star member of their 2014 recruiting class.
During his career at Tennessee, Neiko Creamer recorded no statistics after taking a redshirt his first year on campus. He will have three years of eligibility left in the 2017 season, unless he drops down to the FCS level, where he could play immediately.
