KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The NCAA notified No. 15 Tennessee on Thursday that offensive lineman Cade Mays' appeal for a waiver to play immediately has been approved.
Now it's up to the Southeastern Conference and Commissioner Greg Sankey to allow Mays to transfer inside the league after the lineman started his career at Georgia.
Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt said he hadn't really had a chance to talk to Sankey much about this situation. But he said the commissioner has done a great job protecting players and putting athletes first.
