Jarrett Guarantano Pins Thank You Letter to Vols

Jarrett Guarantano’s time in Knoxville is coming to an end. The longtime Tennessee quarterback officially entered his name into the transfer portal following the final home game on Saturday.

To show appreciation for his four years as a Vol, Guarantano pinned a thank you letter to the university. He then posted it to his social media on Sunday.

“Dear University of Tennessee,

Thank you for allowing a kid from Lodi, N.J., to live out his dream of playing SEC football. This prestigious university has allowed me to grow academically, as a football player, and as a man. These past few years have taught me many lessons, and I am truly thankful for them. It’s a blessing to be a Tennessee Volunteer.

“To the previous staff and current staff, thank you for the countless hours we have spent together. Thank you to the medical staff, strength staff, and nutrition staff for helping me reach my goals. Thank you to Coach Pruitt, Coach Weinke, Coach Artis, Coach Chaney and Coach Butch for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to lead this program.

“To my professors and support staff at the Thornton Center, thank you for pushing me to become the best student possible.

“To my brothers, I love you guys. There is not a group of people that I would rather have spent my time with on and off the field. Every single memory will be held dear to me. Thank you for always being by my side through the highs and lows.

“With a heavy heart, I would like to announce I am exploring the option of entering the NFL Draft or playing my final college season elsewhere. I thank God every day for the beautiful blessings that he has put before me & for the new journey ahead.”

Guarantano had ups and downs during his time at Tennessee. He became the starter in his career, but he never developed enough to get the team to the next level.

Now, it looks like he will finish his playing career elsewhere. He finished his Vol career with 6,174 passing yards, 38 touchdowns and 17 interceptions while also adding four touchdowns on the ground.

Stay tuned for more updates on where Guarantano lands.
