The University of Tennessee football program announced Friday that sophomore tailback David Oku is transferring after the 2011 spring semester. Oku will not participate in any team activities from this point forward.
“David has handled this situation in a professional way, and we mutually agreed that his departure is best for him and for our program,” Tennessee head football coach Derek Dooley said.
A 5-foot-10, 195-pound running back from Midwest City, Okla., Oku played in 26 games for the Vols from 2009-10 and rushed for 268 yards and three touchdowns on 65 carries. He also caught nine passes for 92 yards and returned 49 kickoffs for 1,175 yards in his two seasons with Tennessee.
