DeAnthony Arnett May Now Be Able To Transfer To Michigan, Michigan State

Tennessee Volunteers wide receiver DeAnthony Arnett, who hopes to transfer to a top-level program in the state of Michigan in order to be near his ailing father, may be able to do just that, coach Derek Dooley said Tuesday. It's an apparent reverse course, as Arnett had previously complained the program would only release him to MAC schools, but not the Michigan Wolverines or Michigan St. Spartans who recruiting him hard out of high school.

Josh Ward@Josh_Ward Derek Dooley plans to grant DeAnthony Arnett a release closer to home. Dooley said that includes Michigan & Michigan State.

UT higher-ups were reportedly set to meet about the situation Tuesday-ish, with prospects low for Arnett receiving good news. But it sounds like the former four-star recruit may be able to move closer to his family and without giving up his hopes of playing at the highest level.
