Australian punter Tim Gleeson announced earlier today, via Twitter, that he would be enrolling at Tennessee.
Happy to announce that the University of Tennessee will be where I’m heading! A rich history with a football program on the rise #govols

Gleeson will almost certainly have to sit out the 2013 season, due to NCAA transfer rules.
The newest Vol averaged 43 yards a punt in 2012 for Wyoming. He has three years of NCAA eligibility remaining.
Gleeson left the Wyoming program in early April for personal reasons. He had hinted earlier this week that he was close to signing with a new program.
Feel close to signing with a new team… Should have news in the next few days! Last visit tomorrow.. Excited!!

When Gleeson becomes eligible to play he will provide the Vols with a considerable upgrade on special teams.
