Tennessee Football Continues Their Preparations For Razorbacks


Tennessee football was back on the practice field Monday afternoon as they continue their Arkansas installation. The Vols are coming off a week of getting back to the basics, according to head coach Jeremy Pruitt.

“For us, this open week was a great opportunity to go back to the basics. Just going back through the early days of install trying to catch some guys up, and it was a good opportunity to do that and move some guys around to possibly create some opportunities for guys who have worked hard in practice and really give them an opportunity.”

The Vols moved a few guys around during practice last week, looking to add depth and opportunity. Keyshawn Lawrence moved to the STAR position. Pruitt moved a few others around on the defensive side, including Bryson Eason, Morven Joseph, and Kwauze “Pakk” Garland.

“Some of these guys didn’t get to do it, so after going through the first five weeks of practice here, it’s an opportunity for us to put them into positions so that we can see them for their future.”

The QB rotation has pretty much stayed the same, for now.

Tennessee’s Trey Smith was asked to evaluate his own performance over the past five games.

“I don’t think I’ve played that well in terms of playing up to my abilities. I don’t feel like I’ve really scratched the surface of it yet, which is frustrating. There are a lot of things that I can do better, but as I said, the game isn’t based on sympathy. You have to bring it every week”.

The offensive line seems to be finally getting healthier, as the group struggled with injuries over the previous five games.
