Tennessee defensive end Chandavian Bradley moves to junior college

Chandavian Bradley, defensive end for the Tennessee football team and former four-star recruit, has left the team and enrolled at Hutchinson Community College in Kansas.

Rivals.com first reported his departure. On Wednesday, Bradley confirmed the report on X, formerly known as Twitter, posting: “A huge thank you to the entire @Vol_Football team for everything you’ve done for me.”

Bradley was a celebrated addition to the Vols a year ago, ranked No. 136 nationally by 247Sports Composite as a promising edge rusher from Platte City, Missouri, in the class of 2023.

But Bradley did not play in a game as a rookie and was never able to gain a foothold in the rotation.

According to a University of Tennessee police report obtained by Knox News, he was cited for reckless driving on March 23.

Bradley had regressed on UT’s defensive line depth chart, the strongest position on the roster.

And the edge rushers have been especially competitive, with All-SEC players James Pearce, Joshua Josephs and Caleb Herring leading the pack. Additionally, five-star edge rusher Jordan Ross is set to enroll this summer.

Bradley, a 6-foot-5, 220-pound player, has four years of eligibility remaining after redshirting in 2023.
