Running back Watson no longer with Vols

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Running back Quenshaun Watson is no longer part of Tennessee's football program.

Tennessee released a spring roster Monday that didn't include Watson. Athletic department spokesman Jimmy Stanton confirmed Monday night that Watson isn't with the team anymore.

Watson played six games as a freshman in 2012 and rushed for 66 yards and one touchdown on 23 carries.

Tennessee also announced the enrollment of wide receiver Paul Harris, all-purpose athlete Lemond Johnson, defensive back Riyahd Jones, all-purpose athlete Jalen Reeves-Maybin and linebacker Corey Vereen.

Jones came to Tennessee from Garden City (Kan.) Community College and is listed as a junior. Harris, Johnson, Reeves-Maybin and Vereen are recent high school graduates and incoming freshmen.
