Tyler Baron, a former Tennessee Vols defensive lineman, entered the NCAA transfer portal this week for the second time this summer.

Baron initially committed to Ole Miss after using the transfer site in December.

The former Vol, who spent the first four seasons of his collegiate career at Tennessee, did not remain long in Oxford before moving to Louisville and participating in spring camp with the Cardinals.

Baron’s choice to re-enter the NCAA transfer portal after leaving the SEC creates an interesting predicament.

Typically, SEC athletes who use the NCAA transfer portal during the spring window in April are ineligible to move to another SEC program.

Baron completed the 2023 season as an SEC player before moving to an SEC school in December. But he eventually enrolled in an ACC institution.

So, is Baron eligible to transfer to an SEC school this time around?

Here’s what Chris Hummer and Matt Zenitz of 247Sports said about the situation this week.
