(WATE) — A former University of Tennessee quarterback is heading to Colorado to continue his collegiate career.

JT Shrout, a redshirt sophomore, announced on social media Sunday night that he is transferring to play for the University of Colorado Buffaloes.

Shrout was with the Vols since the 2018 season. Midway through the 2020 season, Shrout shared time with freshman quarterback Harrison Bailey for Tennessee behind center. Shrout announced his intentions to transfer following the Vols’ regular season loss against Texas A&M.
