Arnett Leaving Volunteers PDF Print

Freshman wide receiver DeAnthony Arnett has asked for and has been released from his

scholarship at the University of Tennessee.
Arnett, a star recruit and a native of Saginaw, MI., want to transfer to a school that is closer to his ailing father. But upon the receiving his official release, there are conditions attached.
Arnett will not be released to an FBS-level program like Michigan or Michigan State, and the statement from Tennessee spokesman Jimmy Stanton would seem to confirm this.
"We're not denying him a release to be near his family, get a good education and play Division I football," the release stated. "But at the same time, we do have a policy of not releasing players to schools we either play or recruit against. Where he's from, there are several good D-I schools nearby that would be good options to play football, get a good education and keep him near his family."
Arnett, however isn't very happy with that decision.
"Coach (Derek) Dooley, myself or anybody doesn't know what the future holds for my father," Arnett said in an email. "I feel that I represented the University of Tennessee the best way I can on and off the field and I feel I have earned the right to be released unconditional to all schools in Michigan."
Arnett played in seven games for the Volunteers this season. He caught 24 passes for 242 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
