Former Brentwood Academy offensive lineman Alex Bullard is coming back home to the University of Tennessee.

The four star offensive lineman and the No. 7 rated guard in the country spent the last two years at Notre Dame.

InsideTennessee.com confirmed with Bullard’s mother Dorthy that Alex will indeed transfer to the Knoxville campus next week.

“We are so excited that is coming back home,” Mrs. Bullard said Thursday night. “Alex father passed away last April and its been a big hardship on our family. Notre Dame released him from his scholarship yesterday.”

According to Mrs. Bullard, Alex redshirted his freshman year at Notre Dame and was a redshirt freshman this past fall. He will have three years to play and he may not have to sit out the normal one year due to the NCAA transfer rule.

“He may not have to sit out a year,” Mrs. Bullard said. “We are hoping he won’t. We will apply for the NCAA Hardship rule. It’s been really tough on our family, Alex is still grieving. He and his father was very close.”

Bullard is a 6-foot-5, 285 pound athlete, that has been clocked in the forty at 4.9 seconds.
