Georgia Transfer To Play At Tennessee Immediately?
Is Georgia transfer Cade Mays going to play at Tennessee immediately?
When news came down that Mays was planning to join the Vols, the expectation from most was that he would have to miss a season.
As it turns out, that may not be the case.
According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, Mays’ attorney Tom Mars seems reasonably confident that he would be able to get his client a transfer waiver.
If that were to happen, Mays would be eligible to play in 2020.
“Of all the waiver cases I’ve been involved in, I’ve never seen anything quite like this one,” Mars said.
“For the sake of everyone who loves college football, I hope I never see another one.”
Mays is a five-star offensive lineman who started in 11 of 14 games for the school as a freshman.
He is essentially guaranteed a starting spot on Tennessee, assuming he is able to play next season.
The Vols finished 2019 with an 8-5 record, recording six straight wins to conclude the season.
