UT will let Arnett go
with some restrictions

KNOXVILLE (AP) — Tennessee will allow freshman wide receiver DeAnthony Arnett to transfer to a program to be closer to his ailing father, as long as that school is not one Tennessee plays or competes against for recruits.
Volunteers spokesman Jimmy Stanton told The Associated Press last week that the decision fits with a “long-standing policy” and will allow Arnett a chance to play for a Division I program near his father in Saginaw, Mich.
Arnett wrote in an email to the media that his father suffers from lung disease and that he was told by coach Derek Dooley he could join a Mid-American Conference school.
His transfer request will not be reviewed until later this week.
