Former Tennessee Volunteers running back Jalen Hurd announced Saturday that he will transfer to Baylor.

Hurd made the news official with the following tweet:

The Hendersonville, Tennessee, native rushed for 451 yards and three touchdowns to go with 81 receiving yards and two touchdowns for the Vols last season.

Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports reported Hurd will play receiver with the Bears.

Hurd announced his intention to transfer in October.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, Hurd explained his decision in November.

According to Jon Garcia of The Tennessean, Hurd said he suffered “multiple injuries this year that were not and should not have been disclosed,” and that offensive adjustments to suit his strengths “did not happen on a consistent enough basis.”

While Hurd struggled in 2016, he was a key contributor for the Vols in 2015 with 1,285 rushing yards and 14 offensive touchdowns.

Hurd will join a Baylor team that lost No. 1 receiver KD Cannon to the NFL draft. However, Hurd will not be available until 2018, as he must sit out one year before completing his senior campaign with the Bears.
