The 2020 shirtless picture edition of Tennessee basketball was so hot I didn’t even notice the players were wearing masks.
The past two offseasons, maybe longer I can’t remember, the Vols basketball team has taken a picture to show off all their hard work. And, every offseason, I’m blown away.
If you haven’t seen the picture, take a look at it below.

The first thing that stands out is holy fulk Pons is HUGE. How can that picture even be real? The dude is an absolute freak.
Speaking of John Fulkerson, it looks like he’s benching around 145 now. I know John Calipari is shaking right now. Just imagine how dominant Fulkerson is going to be next season. Instead of averaging 21.5 points against the Wildcats, it could be 37.7 next season.
I do have a question, though. What is Drew Pember thinking? Out of all the guys to stand next to and flex, he picked Pons.
Dude stand next to the walk-on that’s like 4-foot-11.
New addition E.J. Anosike looks bigger than I thought from previous highlight videos. Some speculate that Anosike will be in the starting lineup at the start of the season.
I don’t share that opinion. However, Anosike is versatile and will be able to give Pons a blow at the four and even play the five at times, allowing Fulkerson to trail the play.
I can’t write this whole article without noticing Josiah-Jordan James. Like Jarrett Guarantano, it appears James added like 10-15 pounds of muscle this offseason.
Finally, since I’m a big leg guy, look at Jaden Springer. I’m trying my best to become a leg model. So far, I haven’t had success. But, dang Springer might have me beat.
Hopefully, all the hard offseason work will pay off, and the Vols will be one of the best teams in the nation.
