Former Tennessee Volunteers defensive back Brandon Turnage has chosen to commit to the Ole Miss Rebels.

The Tennessee Volunteers have been a prominent topic in the NCAA Transfer Portal, experiencing both gains and losses in key contributors. Despite these changes, the coaching staff remains committed to ensuring a competitive roster for the upcoming season. In a recent development, Brandon Turnage, who played as a defensive back for the Volunteers, has decided to join the Ole Miss Rebels. While two of his former teammates initially considered Ole Miss but eventually chose Louisville, Turnage, being a native of Oxford, Mississippi, was drawn to the opportunity of competing in the SEC and playing close to home.
