A new name could help K-State football on defense next season.
Alabama defensive back Brandon Turnage has entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal, BamaInsider has confirmed.
Payton would sign with Ole Miss coming out of high school, but he ended up at Northwest Mississippi Community College. During that time, he was offered and recruited by Jeremy Pruitt's staff before signing with Mississippi State in 2019. Now, Payton's career will continue at Tennessee, as he has announced his commitment to the Volunteers as a graduate transfer, following his entry into the transfer portal last month.
