Tennessee offensive lineman K'Rojhn Calbert has entered the transfer portal after earning his undergraduate degree and suffering through an injury plagued 2021 season.
Calbert, a former Warren County standout, spent the past five seasons at UT. He played 33 games with five starts at right tackle in his career and graduated in December.
In a lengthy post on Twitter, Calbert thanked UT coaches, teammates and fans. And he added, "I am leaving Rocky Top to be able to continue pursuing football and my dream of making it into the NFL."

He can play one more season as a super senior because of a COVID exempt year.
Calbert played only one game in the 2021 season after suffering a preseason injury that sidelined him until November.
Next season, he may have been in the mix for the starting right tackle position, left vacant when Cade Mays declared for the NFL Draft, but it was already a crowded competition.
Dayne Davis, Jeremiah Crawford and Florida transfer Gerald Mincey are expected to compete for that position in spring practice. Mincey played 11 games for the Gators as a reserve, and UT could opt to add another offensive lineman in the transfer portal.
