Ex-Vol QB Stephens going to Division II

Former Tennessee quarteback Nick Stephens plans to transfer to Division II Tarleton State in Texas.

Stephens, who's from Flower Mound, Texas, told ESPN's Joe Schad that he will have two years of eligibility remaining at Tarleton State. Stephens left Tennessee's team this spring after falling behind junior college newcomer Matt Simms and freshman Tyler Bray on the depth chart.
