Another ex-Vol finds a new football home

Yesterday it was reported that former Tennessee wide receiver Nu’Keese Richardson had transferred to Hampton University.

Today, we learn that a second member of the original Bonnie and Clod and their other brother Clod troika has found a new collegiate football home as well.

According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, defensive back Mike Edwards has transferred to Texas Southern.

Edwards, along with Richardson and fellow DB Janzen Jackson, were charged in November with attempted armed robbery.  The charges against Jackson were ultimately dropped, and both Edwards and Richardson — who were dismissed from the program a few days after their arrest — recently pleaded guilty to lesser charges.

Edwards pleaded guilty to reckless endangerment on Jan. 14 and was sentenced to two years of probation.

The DB will be eligible to play for Texas Southern immediately and will have three years of eligibility remaining.

    Heh, Mike Edwards, better known to Vol fans as “the guy that was immediately thrown under the bus because he was the lowest rated recruit”.

    Does this mean that the average citizen can go out and commit “attempted armed robbery” and then expect the college football player punishment? It appears that crime pays for these young men when they know all they’ll get is to change teams and go on probation instead of going to jail for their crimes.
