Per three sources, Hurd will be on campus this weekend.

The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Hurd left Tennessee's team in October with the intent to transfer. As a draft-eligible player, Hurd ponder the idea of entering the NFL Draft but has opted to transfer.

One source told Cardinal Authority that Hurd has expressed an interest in playing tight end at the school he picks. He has also visited Ohio State and California and Oregon is also reportedly interested.

A former U.S. Army All-American and four-star prospect, Hurd was on pace at Tennessee to become the school's all-time leading rusher.

In his three seasons in Knoxville, Hurd amassed  for 2,635 yards and 20 touchdowns in 33 games. He also had 67 receptions for 492 yards and six scores. As a junior, Hurd had 451 yards rushing and five total touchdowns in seven games.

Hurd will have to sit out the 2017 season per the NCAA transfer rules. He's originally from Hendersonville, Tenn.
