Quinten Dormady to transfer from Tennessee

Tennessee quarterback Quinten Dormady announced via his Twitter account today that he will finish his degree this spring and transfer somewhere else to play his final season.

Dormady started the first five games last season before giving way to Jarrett Guarantano and undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery. As a graduate transfer, he’ll be eligible to play immediately next season should he complete his shoulder rehab.

Dormady played sparingly as Josh Dobbs’ backup in both the 2015 and 2016 seasons. Last year, he won the starting spot in fall camp and ended up completing 76 of 137 passes for 925 yards and 6 touchdowns with 6 interceptions. His final start came in the 41-0 loss to Georgia, a game during which he was benched after completing only five passes and throwing two interceptions. Guarantano took over after that game, and after a brief appearance in the South Carolina game, Dormady decided to undergo surgery on his shoulder, thus ending his season.

With Dormady gone, Tennessee’s quarterback roster consists of Guarantano and Will McBride as his backup. Also on the roster but without any playing experience are Zac Jancek and Seth Washington. Class of 2018 pro-style quarterback JT Shrout has signed his letter of intent, so he’ll be on campus next fall as well, but as of right now there are no other quarterbacks committed to Tennessee.

Best of luck to Dormady.

  1. Best of luck. With the right coaching, I think Dormady could be a decent QB. Hopefully he finds success like Peterman and Ferguson.

  2. An important question for Pruitt, Helton, etc.: is the starting QB two years from now currently on the roster? Is JG or Strout (or McBride!) the long-term answer, or just the best of the options currently available?

  3. I wish him luck. Hopefully he can be a bit like Peterman and go on to have a solid college career once he gets in a system that fits his talents and has a coach to take advantage of them.

    Hopefully, Pruitt can find his WB and quickly. There was an article kinda related to this topic, talking of a graduate transfer of a QB from a tiny FCS school, Alex Thomson. (https://sports.yahoo.com/can-qb-alex-thomson-go-tiny-wagner-nfl-phil-simms-thinks-191650386.html)

    PS Am I missing a way to do nice embedded links so it’s not so ugly?
