Tykee Smith Talks Departure From WVU & Which Schools He’s Heard From

Last week, West Virginia sophomore safety Tykee Smith shocked everyone by announcing that he would be entering his name into the NCAA transfer portal. 

During his two years in a Mountaineer uniform, Smith has tallied 114 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, one sack, four interceptions, 13 pass breakups, and one forced fumble.

Jonnu Smith opens the door for Titans departure

There’s no question that re-signing free agent tight end Jonnu Smith is atop the offseason priority list for Tennessee Titans General Manager Jon Robinson.
