Four schools to watch for Tennessee transfer Tyler Baron

Tennessee transfer Tyler Baron has generated plenty of interest from major programs since entering the NCAA transfer portal, and On3’s Chad Simmons has the latest.

Alabama, Georgia, Ole Miss and Texas are all vying for Baron’s services and have been involved already.

Georgia, the two-time defending national champions for now, went in home with Baron yesterday on a visit, according to Simmons, getting to know him a little bit better and offering him some insight on what the program could do for his pro prospects and his on-field success in 2024.

The Bulldogs will obviously have a lot to sell. But none of the other three programs are slouches, either.

Simmons reports that Baron will make a one-day official visit to Ole Miss on Thursday, with the Rebels in the middle of a 10-win season and looking to build on that going forward with Lane Kiffin. Ole Miss already has quite a bit of ammunition for next year.

Though quarterback Jaxson Dart has yet to make a decision on returning to school, offensive weapons Quinshon Judkins, Tre Harris and Caden Prieskorn are back. That level of offensive firepower should have Ole Miss competitive for a College Football Playoff berth in 2024 if the defense can pull its weight.

Meanwhile, Alabama will visit Baron at his home on Friday.

The Crimson Tide returned to the College Football Playoff this season and figure to once again be contenders moving forward. Baron, of course, will be familiar with Alabama after squaring off with the Tide every year while with the Volunteers.

Finally, Simmons reports that Baron will use a one-day official visit on Texas on Saturday. The Longhorns are also a College Football Playoff contender after reaching the final four this season.

Like the previous three programs, the Longhorns figure to return quite a bit from their playoff squad, making it an intriguing option for the talented Tennessee pass-rusher.

Suffice it to say there is no shortage of quality options for Baron as he narrows things down and picks his next school, and the next few days will provide him some real insight into which program stands out above the rest.
