Jalen Hurd says he plans to transfer from Tennessee

COLUMBIA SC- OCTOBER 29 2016- running back Jalen Hurd #1 of the Tennessee Volunteers during the game between the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Tennessee Volunteers at Williams Brice Stadium in Columbia SC

The Vols rose to No. 9 in the Associated Press poll, scoring a win over better-than-expected Virginia Tech, beating Florida for the first time since 2004 and upending Georgia on a last-second Hail Mary. The decision to transfer likely goes beyond his struggles and there may potentially be conflicts with the program itself, but for now, it looks as if Hurd's season and career at Tennessee are over. The radio station also reported that the 6-foot-4 Hurd wants to switch positions and will attempt to play either wide receiver or tight end at his new school. Butch Jones' team has since lost three games, including a 49-10 loss to Alabama and, most recently, a 24-21 loss at previously 3-4 SC.

Reportedly, Hurd is upset with the way he has been used this season.

Hurd has rushed for 451 yards and three touchdowns this season but has been a poor fit for Tennessee's zone-read offense.
