The war of attrition for the Tennessee Volunteers continues as former four-star receiver Preston Williams is leaving the program. Volquest first reported the news after citing several sources and now the Vols are down to only eight scholarship receivers.
This comes on the heels of defensive lineman Danny O’Brien’s dismissal from the team for “violation of team rules” and a ton of other injuries hampering the rest of the defense. Williams was a 6’4″, 210-pound receiver that hadn’t seen a lot of playing time yet, but was poised to break out next season.

Williams played in three games this year, catching nine passes for 89 yards. In his two-year career, Williams recorded 16 catches for 247 total receiving yards and two touchdowns for the Vols. The sophomore was rated as the No. 29 overall recruit in the country and the No. 3 receiver in the 2015 recruiting class, according to 247Sports.
