Former Ohio State safety Andre Turrentine has decided to return to his home state to continue his college football career.

Monday, Turrentine announced via Twitter that he will be transferring to Tennessee. He was a 4-star member of Ohio State’s 2021 recruiting class, ranking as a Top 200 prospect, per 247Sports’ composite rankings.

Turrentine made the announcement with a graphic in a Tennessee uniform. He will have all four years of eligibility to use with the Volunteers.

Turrentine is a native of Nashville, so this will be a homecoming of sorts for the defensive back. He will join a Volunteers squad that closed out the 2021 campaign with a 7-6 record.

Last season, Turrentine did not see any game action with the Buckeyes, which finished the year at 11-2. Because he did not play, the former 4-star recruit was able to maintain his redshirt status.
