Aubrey Solomon announces transfer to Tennessee

From the Big House to Rocky Top.

Aubrey Solomon, a former five-star defensive tackle, announced on Friday that he will be transferring to the University of Tennessee to join head coach Jeremy Pruitt and the upstart Vols. Tennessee has already confirmed and announced the move.

Here is his statement:

The former 5-star from Leesburg (Ga.) battled injuries throughout his two-year career. He underwent successful knee surgery in early September, but returned late in the year. He totaled 16 tackles with two TFLs as a freshman in 2017, but he had only a pair of tackles this season while being sidelined.

And so ends the Solomon saga with Michigan and adds another log to the flames between Michigan and Tennessee, who have been butting heads on the recruiting trail recently.

Michigan will always have this, though.
