According to the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Tom Groeschen, Virginia tight end Jeremy Dollin may transfer to the Cincinnati Bearcats for his final football season.

Dollin is currently listed as a senior and already burned his redshirt. Considering he’s already attended the University of Virginia for the last four years, I would assume that he’s either earned or is working to earn his undergraduate degree thereby allowing him to transfer without penalty. In other words, based on the NCAA’s graduate rules, Dollin could come to Cincinnati and not sit out a year. If it materialized, this would essentially be a similar situation to that of Marques Aiken and John Williams.
The Cavaliers tight end dressed the last two seasons but just appeared in a handful of Virginia’s games. Dollin’s first live action of his career came against Richmond in 2012. Other than a single appearance at tight end against VMI, he never was really elevated higher than special teams last season. But perhaps a change of scenery helps him blossom in his last year of eligibility if he in fact decides to transfer to UC.
