Gooden was a redshirt senior and former transfer from Independence Community College. Last year he suffered a knee injury but many thought Gooden Jr. was going to be a big part of the team in 2020.

The Vols football program dismissed the 22-year-old after court records showed he was arrested Thursday morning for felony domestic assault.
