Offensive lineman Preston Bailey has left Tennessee’s football team, a source within the program told the News Sentinel.
The freshman from Montgomery Bell Academy is the third reserve offensive linemen UT has lost since last season.
Sophomores Ramone Johnson and Darius Myers were not welcome back following a 2008 season when both were suspended for two games.
UT lost one starter on the offensive line from last season to graduation. Depth will be a concern following 2009 as the Vols will likely start four seniors.
It is unclear if Bailey could return in the future. A strong student, Bailey could focus on school or pursue football elsewhere.
