After becoming the latest head coach of the Volunteers football program, Jeremy Pruitt took it upon himself to poach a graduate transfer from the University of Alabama. 

Redshirt sophomore Brandon Kennedy, who graduated in December of 2017, has committed to Tennessee via the new graduate transfer rule – according to a report from 

He played in 10 career games for the Crimson Tide, including three last seasons as its backup center prior to sustaining an injury. Hailing from Wetumpka, Ala., Kennedy was one of five offensive linemen to sign in Alabama’s 2015 recruiting class. He was a part of two Southeastern Conference championships in 2015 and 2016 and two College Football Playoff national titles in 2015 and 2017, but now he hopes to be a valuable starter on Pruitt’s roster at Knoxville. 

Kennedy will face his former school on Saturday, Oct. 20 at Neyland Stadium.
