  1. The Tennessee Vols football program has three former players on the 2020 College Football Hall of Fame ballot. Al Wilson, who played linebacker from 1995 to 1998 and was the leader of the national title team, is among them. Larry Seivers, a two-time All-American wide receiver in 1975 and 1976, is another. Finally, there is Bobby Majors, the younger brother of Johnny Majors who was an All-American in 1971 after setting a school record with 10 interceptions.
  2. Grant Williams: He will be missed....
  3. Tennessee is chasing the son of a former NFL receiver in the 2020 class. In 2021, they’ll be coming after another. The Vols sent out an offer to Marvin Harrison Jr. on Thursday night, the son of the former Colts’ star receiver and Peyton Manning’s favorite target in Indianapolis. Harrison is a good bit taller than his father, checking in at 6-4, 184 pounds to start his junior year of high school. 247 Sports has him as a high four-star prospect, ranked as the 51st overall in the 2021 class. He’s currently the 6th ranked receiver in the class. The Philadelphia native already holds several big time offers from the likes of Florida, Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State and Texas A&M. The Buckeyes have already surged out to a lead, holding seven crystal ball projections for Harrison. Take a look

    Bone crushes NBA Combine

    He is gone folks. This kid is good.......... A quick look through all of the two round NBA mock drafts gives you projections on Grant Williams and Admiral Schofield, but virtually nothing on point guard Jordan Bone. The Nashville native declared for the draft in early April, reportedly with intentions of staying in. However, to this point, the lack of buzz around Bone had been notable. That all changed on Thursday afternoon. Bone finished the day second in the vertical jump, registering a staggering 42.5 inches. Former Tennessee target Jalen Lecque eventually took over the top spot. He then led the pack in the 3/4ths court sprint, checking in with a time of 3.03. For reference, that’s good enough to best the times of Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook. Bone’s vertical jump was also a good amount better than those same two NBA guards. He became a complete player for Tennessee this season, taking a huge leap forward from the 2017-18 season. Something clicked for Bone, who was in total control of the offense throughout the season. Rick Barnes talked for two years about Bone’s potential and athleticism. That potential started to shine through in 2018-19. The 6-3 point guard jumped from 7.3 to 13.5 points per game. His assist numbers jumped up as well, going from 3.5 to 5.8 per contest. His field goal percentage climbed to 46 percent, while he seemed to find his long range stroke late in the year. That improvement had the NBA taking notice, causing Bone to declare to get feedback from teams. He has until May 29th to make a final decision, and he told Stadium’s Jeff Goodman that he intends on making that call on the 29th. Bone’s teammate Grant Williams announced earlier in the week that he would be announcing his final NBA Draft decision on Saturday. We’ll soon find out the final decisions for both — each of which will greatly change the expectation level for the 2019-20 team, one way or the other. Jordan Bone crushes NBA Combine, sets date for final decision WWW.ROCKYTOPTALK.COM Bone had a really good day.

  7. Tennessee basketball recruiting got a huge Maryland commitment. Three-star Cumberland, Md. power forward Oliver Robinson-Nkamhoua chose the Volunteers. Just one day after two of the three 2019 Tennessee basketball signees arrived on campus to begin their college careers, the Vols got a commitment from another player in that class. Western Maryland prospect Oliver Robinson-Nkamhoua committed to Rocky Top Tuesday morning. A three-star prospect on Rivals, Robinson-Nkamhoua committed to the program over the Illinois Fighting Illini and the Pitt Panthers, according to Corey Evans of Rivals.com. The Finnish-born prospect spent most of his junior year injured, limiting national interest in him his senior year. At 6’8″ 210 pounds, Robinson-Nkamhoua went to Bishop Walsh High School in Cumberland, Md. He is considered a project, but Rick Barnes still deserves credit for securing his commitment over multiple other Power Five schools. As a late bloomer, Robinson-Nkamhoua shows a ton of potential. Given the fact that he was able to maintain a three-star rating and draw interest from Power Five programs despite his injury as a junior, he clearly has some talent. Combine that with Barnes’s ability to develop players, and Robinson-Nkamhoua could be a match made in heaven for Tennessee basketball. With the losses of Admiral Schofield and Kyle Alexander and now the strong possibility of Grant Williams leaving early, playing time could be wide open in the post as well for Vols newcomers. That could be a big selling point for Robinson-Nkamhoua and why he committed. But with DJ Burns and Yves Pons on the roster, Barnes targeting multiple transfers and a couple of forwards committed, competition will still be fierce. Here’s a look at Robinson-Nkamhoua’s highlight reel from back in 2017, before he got hurt his junior year. Tennessee basketball now has four commitments, including Robinson-Nkamhoua, along with five-star combo guard Josiah James, three-star small forward Davonte Gaines and three-star power forward Drew Pember. James and Gaines arrived on campus Monday with Pember set to arrive next month.

    Vols beat Memphis in foul plagued game

    That game looked like a bunch of thugs. Still a win is a win
  9. I will just leave this here: USC offensive coordinator Tee Martin among Trojans assistant coaches not returning for 2019 season - CBSSports.com WWW.CBSSPORTS.COM Martin was stripped of his game-day play-calling duties earlier in the season I am not a Tee Martin homer but I think this has more to do with Helton saving his ass than bad OC calling. Honestly there was a lot more wrong than just OC playcalling and I have read Helton meddles.

    Alright Rob...

    Other than Gonzaga this team should win every other game this year through December. When SEC play gets heated up then we will know about this team. There is some good teams in the SEC this year, Auburn played well against Duke, KY will turn it around and there is some teams up and coming in the west. I still think the Vols should at least match the 25-26 win season from last year. anything else would be disappointing
  11. But I would think the stress at that age and the responsibilities would cause his life to be much more stressful.. Whippersnapper?
  12. Let me tell you now if Morris can get his buddy to come to k'town that would be HUGE! Imagine turning the Number 1 ranked recruit in the country to the Vols. Talk about gaining a huge get and momentum for getting other recruits. Tennessee beating Missouri and looking impressive and the fanbase supporting strongly Saturday will be HUGE HUGE HUGE!

    5 star Josiah Jordan James signs with basketvols

    Apparently Rick Barnes is getting a rep at Tennessee. Players are noticing and wanting to come to Knoxville. nice sign. It probably doesn't hurt this guy coached a very popular player in the NBA like Kevin Durant.
  14. they will look a lot better when Turner returns
  15. I saw that Saturday and was impressed. Pruitt get's it. No one is spared or immune from getting their asses chewed.

    Vols Land Commitment from JUCO Defensive End

    This one looks good. Remember, this is Pruitt recruits not soft emotional pansies from the Butch Jones classes

    Missouri to be Without Two Top Players vs. Vols

    Right now anything to give the Vols an edge is good. Generally I don't want to win when a team is down because of injuries but winning out and gaining momentum for next year is key to recruiting and the emotions of these players going into next year. So I will take ANY advantage.

    Vols Land Commitment from JUCO Defensive End

    Keep loading it up Coaches!
  19. I watched that game last night. It was sloppy. Grant Williams looked good but there was a lot of missed shots like dunks and clankers. The play was sloppy and it is good to get this out of the way. This gives Rick Barnes something to jump on them about. This a training and improvement identification type of game. Like the guy said last night on ESPN, this is a game they would use to lose. They played sloppy and still won going away so while ugly it actually might be a good sign
  20. I see a win against Vandy and an Independence Bowl game appearance. still.......... The Tennessee Volunteers improved to 5-5 on the season with an impressive win over Kentucky on Saturday afternoon. Now, first-year coach Jeremy Pruitt only needs one more win to get his team eligible for a bowl, and the schedule is certainly set up to make that happen. However, ESPN’s FPI is still lower on the Vols than most, giving them a less-than-50-percent chance to win each of their two remaining games. Here’s what FPI thinks of the Vols’ chances to win: vs. Mizzou — 31.6% at Vanderbilt — 45.6% Of course, that won’t matter to Pruitt and his squad. They weren’t given much of a chance to beat Kentucky on Saturday (or at Auburn earlier this year, for that matter). It’ll be interesting to see if the Vols can take care of business and earn the extra practices that come along with a bowl berth.

    AP Top 25 is out

    It seems every year we go through this though. Kentucky starts out strong and tanks in October/November, That lasted a little be longer this year but still they seem to do this after getting people excited. I was just looking through this ranking and just saw Utah State? Where did THAT come from? They were one of the worst in CFB back when Jones and the Vols played them in like 2013. Wow someone coached that team up. UCF while they haven't really played anyone still has beaten who was in front of them. No offense and I don't see them better than the top 5 or 6 teams but I would bet they would keep up with Washington State and LSU. Placing a two loss team ahead of them even though they are an SEC team seems a little biased in my opinion. Remember this same team beat a Auburn team in a bowl game last year that beat UGA and Bama. I don't think they should be in the playoff but still a little higher than where they are.
