Tennessee also welcomed former Michigan State running back Madre London to the team. As graduate transfers, both are eligible to play for the Vols this fall. Kennedy has two seasons of eligibility remaining. London has one season left.
Kennedy tweeted a picture of himself in a Tennessee uniform on Saturday with the message, “A new approach to an old dream.” London had announced on social media in March that he was transferring to Tennessee.
Kennedy played a total of 10 games for Alabama as a reserve center over the 2016 and 2017 seasons after redshirting in 2015.
Kennedy and London join former Stanford quarterback Keller Chryst as graduate transfers on Tennessee’s roster.
