Former Clemson running back Lyn-J Dixon is transferring to Tennessee.

Dixon rushed for 1,420 yards in four seasons with the Tigers and transferred to West Virginia earlier this year. In June, he said he was re-entering the transfer portal.

Tennessee starting running back Jabari Small is back in 2022 after logging 140 carries for 792 yards in 2021.

But Tennessee adding depth at running back is not a surprise. The Vols lost sophomore Len'Neth Whitehead to a season-ending injury that required surgery, coach Josh Heupel said Sunday night.

The Volunteers open the 2022 season on Sept. 1 at home against Ball State.
