Oklahoma has landed an impact player at a position of need, with Tennessee transfer defensive tackle Da’Jon Terry choosing the Sooners.

“It has been a great honor to call Tennessee my, ‘Home sweet home,’ for the past two years. From my first day on campus I did nothing but give my all for my teammates, coaches, and every other person that helped me on my journey as a Vol. For me to obtain my goals and aspirations, my family and I have decided it would be best for me to enter the transfer portal… I could not be where I am today without every person that has entered my life here in Knoxville. Thank you so much.”


Originally from Mississippi, Terry spent his first two seasons at Kansas before transferring to Tennessee in 2021. Listed at 6-4, 321 pounds, Terry totaled 35 tackles, six tackles for loss, and three sacks in 25 games for the Vols over the past two seasons. In 2023, he was set to be a fifth-year senior with Tennessee but opted for a change in scenery, which landed him in Norman.

In 2022, Terry entered the starting lineup against LSU and stayed there for the next seven contests, piling up 16 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, and two sacks.

Terry is the fifth transfer portal addition along the defensive line in the 2023 cycle for OU, joining Rondell Bothroyd, Davon Sears, Trace Ford, and Jacob Lacey. The Sooners expect every one of them to immediately make an impact in 2023, along with the rest of the 16 transfers coming into the program.

Oklahoma will start its 2023 season against Arkansas State on September 2 in Norman, with kickoff slated for 11:00 a.m. CT.
