Miles Kitselman, the tight end from Alabama, moves to Tennessee’s football program.

Tight end Miles Kitselman, previously with Alabama, has transferred to Tennessee football following his commitment to the Vols during a weekend visit. He entered the transfer portal on January 3, after Alabama’s loss in the CFP semifinal but before coach Nick Saban’s retirement announcement. A Lyndon, Kansas native, Kitselman played 19 games at Alabama in the past two seasons, primarily on special teams, and spent one season at Hutchinson Community College before that.

Standing at 6-foot-5 and weighing 250 pounds, Kitselman is mainly recognized as a blocking tight end. He contributed two catches for 18 yards in 2022 and had no catches in 2023. It’s noteworthy that Alabama is scheduled to play at Tennessee on October 19.

Kitselman’s addition brings depth to a crucial position in Tennessee’s offense, as tight ends Jacob Warren and McCallan Castles have exhausted their eligibility. The leading candidates at tight end are Notre Dame transfer Holden Staes and Ethan Davis, a former four-star prospect. Tennessee typically rotates two tight ends, and Kitselman provides additional options in case of injuries.
