Tennessee football gets transfer wide receiver Isaiah Neyor from Wyoming

·1 min read

Wyoming wide receiver Isaiah Neyor has committed to transfer to Tennessee, he announced on Twitter Saturday.

Neyor, a 6-foot-3, 210-pounder, made 44 receptions for 878 yards in the 2021 season. His 12 TD catches and 20 yards-per-catch average both ranked No. 7 in FBS. He was a model of consistency with at least two receptions in all 13 games.

After entering the transfer portal, Neyor chose UT over Southern Cal and Texas among other schools.

"Vol nation, let's rock!" he posted on Twitter.

Neyor plans to enroll at UT later this month and participate in spring practice, and he has three seasons of eligibility remaining.

Neyor should fill a vacancy in Josh Heupel's up-tempo offense, which maximized Southern Cal transfer Velus Jones Jr. and Mississippi State transfer JaVonta Payton for the best season of their career. Both finished their eligibility.

UT ranked No. 7 in scoring offense, averaging 39.3 points per game. Its passing attack will return quarterback Hendon Hooker, coming off the highest passer rating in UT history, and wide receiver Cedric Tillman, who had a 1,000-yard season.
