KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Sophomore cornerback Daniel Gray, who earned a start in Tennessee’s beleaguered secondary as a true freshman in 2012, is no longer with the Vols.
The departure alters Tennessee’s roster outlook and also further depletes the shrinking 2012 signing class.
The Vols also missed their top nickel back, fifth-year senior Eric Gordon, for most of the spring. Gordon is out while battling personal problems. Although it hasn’t been officially announced — and might not be until August — it appears increasingly unlikely that Gordon will return to the football field.
