Two gridders leaving program

Tennessee's football team just freed up two scholarships.

Little-used reserves Shannon Benton and Andre Taylor have elected to leave the program and transfer to other schools where they might see more action.

Benton is a sophomore defensive back from Babson Park, Fla. He saw action in three games last fall. He plans to attend the University of South Florida.

Taylor is a junior defensive tackle from Canada (Scarbrough, Ontario). He did not see action in 2002. He has not yet settled on a new home.
