Why would he transfer? If he loses the starting job to Joe Milton, then he’ll transfer so he can start somewhere else in 2024 instead of starting at Tennessee in 2024 after Milton is gone? That makes no sense.
He’s not transferring unless he loses the job in 2024 to Tayven Jackson.
What I am saying is, if he loses the starting job to Milton, and he feels he has done much better in practice than Milton has, it will certainly have an effect on him. Like, I know I have outperformed Milton, but he still starts, what if I do better than Jackson and Jackson can still start. Things have changed a lot in college football. with NIL and transfer portal. I hope you are right and he does not transfer. But if he does there will be a college to offer him a starting position if he were to go there. Look at he players who have transferred in the last few year, Hooker, 2 qb from Ga. can't remember the names right now but one is the starting qb in nfl, and these all went on to do very good, Burrow from Lsu. a transfer and starting qb in nfl; Hurts from bama. and starting qb in nfl.The days of riding the bench are gone for the good or thinks they are good players. Again, I hope you are right. And I sure hope Nico stays if he doesn't start next year.
