Former Warren County two-sport athlete K’Rojhn Calbert entered the NCAA transfer portal on Wednesday and appears to be on his way to leaving Rocky Top.
Calbert, a redshirt senior who has one year of eligibility remaining, was expected to be in the mix for playing time in the 2022 season for the UT Vols football team.
According to a story by Patrick Brown of GoVols247, Calbert was a starter for the Vols in 2019, but missed most of the 2021 season after suffering a biceps injury during preseason camp. He went through Senior Day festivities before the regular-season finale against Vanderbilt in November.
Wide receiver Andison Coby entered the transfer portal on Wednesday, according to GoVols247. Long snapper Will Albright and running back Dee Beckwith, who went into the portal last week, are the other Tennessee players to go in since the Vols ended a 7-6 season with a painful loss to Purdue in the Music City Bowl.
Calbert, who likely would have been a factor for playing time at both right and left tackle this season, worked to return from his preseason injury and played a few snaps in the fourth quarter of the win against South Alabama in November, but it was his only appearance of the 2021 season.
Calbert is a 6-foot-5, 325-pounder from McMinnville, who played at Warren County High School. He played football and basketball for the Pioneers.
For the Vols, Calbert has played in 33 career games with five starts, all during the 2019 season, and completed his undergraduate degree in communication studies in December.
Athletes can enter the transfer portal and decide to withdraw from the portal and remain at their current school.
