Wyoming punter tweets he’s transferring to Vols

Football portraits, spring 2012

Yes, it’s a punter, but behold the bro-tastic photo we get to use!

On his Twitter account Wednesday afternoon, Tim Gleeson announced “that the University of Tennessee will be where I’m heading!”  It was announced back in early April that Gleeson would be leaving Wyoming after one year with the football program.

“A rich history with a football program on the rise #govols,” Gleeson added in his introductory tweet.

The Vols have yet to confirm the addition of Gleeson, who would likely have to sit out the 2013 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules.

Coming to the Cowboys by way of Australia, Gleeson averaged just under 43 yards per punt (42.95) in 2012.  That total was good for fourth in the Mountain West and 27th nationally as Gleeson earned an honorable mention All-Mountain West nod.

At the time of his departure from the Cowboys, head coach Dave Christensen stated that Gleeson was “going to go home for personal reasons to Australia,” adding that “[h]e’s had some personal issues and its best for him to go back home and take care of those things.”

    We definitely need a punter in addition to a field goal kicker and a QB. QB will be decided in fall camp. We have not had decent punting since the last of the Colquitt brothers departed. We are now in the process of waiting for the Colquitt kids but that is still a ways away.

    Twitter is awesome. No longer do we need to wait for a beat writer to break a story.

    You better stay in Wyoming. Tennessee currently has the nations #1 Punter from Ray Guys’ and the listed #2 with Kohl’s walking on this Fall. He is sure to be the staring kicker soon. Goodday!
