Tennessee had two reserve football players enter the NCAA transfer portal Wednesday, though one is a former Volunteers starter.

Fifth-year senior tackle K'Rojhn Calbert, who missed most of this past season with a biceps injury suffered early in preseason camp, has decided to use the NCAA's extra season of eligibility elsewhere. The 6-foot-5, 325-pounder out of Warren County High School in McMinnville played several snaps late in the 60-14 thrashing of South Alabama on Nov. 20.

Calbert signed under Butch Jones in 2017, redshirted that year and played in 10 games during the 2018 season under first-year coach Jeremy Pruitt. When the Vols went 8-5 and won the Gator Bowl in 2019, Calbert appeared in all 13 contests and made his first career start at right tackle against the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

He also started that year against Florida, Kentucky, Missouri and Indiana in the bowl, but his 2020 season consisted of just 79 snaps as a reserve.

Also entering the portal Wednesday was sophomore receiver Andison Coby, who played in five games this past season. The 6-2, 180-pounder from American Heritage High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, tallied one catch for 5 yards in the 56-0 whipping of Tennessee Tech on Sept. 18.

Coby enrolled at Tennessee last January out of Northeast Mississippi Junior College.

Running back Dee Beckwith and snapper Will Albright entered the transfer portal last week, while outside linebacker Tyler Baron also entered but then withdrew his name. The Vols went 7-6 in Josh Heupel's debut season, which ended with a 48-45 overtime loss to Purdue in the Music City Bowl.
