Andre Turrentine is now a Vol.

A week after entering the transfer portal, the former Ohio State safety has a new home, committing to Tennessee on Monday morning.

Turrentine arrived at Ohio State as a four-star recruit in the class of 2021 and redshirted last season after playing in just four games as a true freshman. However, he was among the standouts of Ohio State's spring game, in which he played the most snaps of any Buckeye (106) and recorded nine tackles with a pass breakup.

Despite his performance in the spring game, Turrentine was unlikely to be in the two-deep at safety for Ohio State this season. Josh Proctor and Kourt Williams are set to lead the depth chart at the bandit position, where Turrentine played in the spring game.

At the other safety positions, Ronnie Hickman and Kye Stokes figure to be the top two at the adjuster position and Tanner McCalister and Cameron Martinez will make up the two-deep at nickel safety.

After redshirting his first collegiate season, Turrentine will now have four years of eligibility remaining at Tennessee.
