All-Sun Belt Troy linebacker to pursue graduate transfer
Troy linebacker Tron Folsom will enter his name into the portal to pursue a graduate transfer elsewhere, he announced on Friday.
“After talking it over with my family,” Folsom wrote in statement posted to his Twitter account through his iPhone’s Notes app, “I will enter my name in the transfer portal and re-open my recruitment as a graduate transfer in the spring. I have no specific schools in mind and will be open minded during this process.”
A native of Alma, Ga., Folsom spent four years at Troy. He redshirted in 2015 and steadily improved from there, posting 23 tackles as a freshman, then shot up to 80 stops as a sophomore in 2017. He was named a Second Team All-Sun Belt honoree for that season, then again in 2018 after leading the Trojans with 79 tackles to go with eight TFLs and a pair of sacks.
While it didn’t work out in his first go-round out of Bacon County High School, at 6-foot-2 and 213 pounds, Folsom should draw plenty of Power 5 interest in his second trip through the recruitment process.
