Recently drafted Buffalo Bills linebacker Tank Carder told 105.3 FM The Fan that his former teammate, Tanner Brock, is transferring to UTEP. The TCU linebacker was selected in the fifth round of the NFL draft.
UTEP has not confirmed this. A UTEP spokesperson said, "Nothing official at this point".
Tanner Brock was kicked off the Horned Frogs' football team when he and three teammates were arrested for distribution of illegal drugs in February.
Brock was TCU's leading tackler in 2010, but injured his ankle in 2011 and missed most of the season.
Moving to El Paso for Brock makes sense. His younger brother, Cooper, is a defensive lineman for the Miners.
According to NCAA transfer rules, Tanner Brock would have to sit out one season. He would have one year of eligbility remaining.
