The Jalen Hurd transfer tour continues, as the former Tennessee running back will visit Louisville this weekend, Scout.com reported.

Hurd left the Vols in October with the intention to transfer to another program. He mulled entering the NFL Draft, but ultimately decided to further explore his college options.

A source told Scout.com that Hurd has expressed interest in transitioning to tight end at his next school. He has visited Ohio State and California and reportedly has received interest from Oregon as well.

Hurd rushed for 2,635 yards and 20 touchdowns during his three seasons at Tennessee and was 443 yards shy of the school rushing record when he quit the team. He led the Vols in rushing in each of his first two seasons, but had rushes for just 451 yards before leaving in ’16.

Hurd must sit out the 2017 season under NCAA transfer rules unless he decides on a FCS program.
