Tennessee has added former Stanford quarterback Keller Chryst to its roster as a graduate transfer.
Volunteers coach Jeremy Pruitt has confirmed the addition of Chryst, who started seven games for Stanford last season before getting replaced by K.J. Costello. Chryst transferred to Tennessee looking for an opportunity to compete. He announced after the 2017 season that he intended to graduate from Stanford in June and go elsewhere for his final season of eligibility.
Pruitt also announced other team updates, including that he considers wide receiver Jauan Jennings to be part of the team again. Jennings was dismissed from the team last November for criticizing Tennessee’s previous coaching staff on social media. Jennings won’t participate in spring practice while recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery. Pruitt said Jennings would be participating in spring practice drills if he were healthy.
Pruitt also said offensive tackle Trey Smith has some ”personal health issues” that will prevent him from participating in spring practice. Pruitt didn’t specify the nature of Smith’s health problems. Smith was Tennessee’s top offensive lineman as a freshman
