  1. After three years in the program and experience at playing two positions, Tennessee football tight end Jordan Allen is entering his name into the transfer portal. Allen was one of the first players to commit to Jeremy Pruitt. Once a four-star junior college edge rusher out of Northern California, Allen initially went to UC Davis but red-shirted in 2016. He then transferred to City College of San Francisco and played nine games in 2017 before transferring to the Vols Allen played outside linebacker for Tennessee football in 2018 and sat out in 2019 due to injury before switching over to tight end this past off-season. He announced his decision to enter the transfer portal on Twitter.
  2. Jimmy Holiday, QB — No. 10, 6-foot, 196 lbs The incoming early enrollee freshman will start out at quarterback for the Vols this spring, though many believe he could move to wide receiver eventually. Holiday is one of five scholarship quarterbacks on UT’s roster this spring. Velus Jones Jr., WR – No. 13, 6-foot, 202 lbs Jones transferred from USC to join the Vols’ wide receiver room, where he’ll be reunited with Tee Martin. Jones was used primarily as a kick returner with the Trojans, and he could definitely take over that role with the Vols as well. He also has an opportunity to carve out some playing time at receiver. Harrison Bailey, QB — No. 15, 6-foot-5, 223 lbs The five-star incoming freshman, Bailey comes in weighing slightly more than he was listed on recruiting services at the time he signed with Tennessee, likely pointing to an offseason of strength training. Bailey will be watched closely this spring as he competes with Jarrett Guarantano and others for the starting quarterback job Miles Jones, WR — No. 20, 5-foot-8, 172 lbs Nebraska wide receiver Miles Jones joined the Vols as a transfer this offseason, but it’s believed he’ll be a walk-on for the 2020 season and likely won’t be eligible for the upcoming season. Jones is a speedy wideout who has a similar height/weight profile of former Vol receiver Alton “Pig” Howard. Dominic Bailey, DL — No. 59, 6-foot-3, 303 lbs Bailey comes in about 10 pounds heavier than he was listed on recruiting sites, which is good news for him. He looks to have the appropriate mass to compete early on, though he’ll have plenty of veteran linemen ahead of him. Enrolling early should help Bailey get a head start on other incoming linemen, though. Cooper Mays, OL — No. 63, 6-foot-3, 290 lbs One of the biggest questions about Cooper Mays during his recruitment was his weight. Was he going to be big enough to play in the SEC? His official measurements on UT’s roster put those questions to rest, as he comes in just 10 pounds shy of 300 pounds. The freshman isn’t expected to make huge contributions in his first year on campus, but he has the potential to be a starting center or guard in the future. Cade Mays, OL — No. 68, 6-foot-6, 328 lbs The Georgia transfer who was once committed to the Vols, Cade Mays returns home this spring. It’s still unknown if he’ll be eligible for the 2020 season yet, but he has the perfect frame and size to help UT right away. He was a multi-year starter for the Bulldogs and is a former five-star who played for Knoxville Catholic.

  4. Interesting takes in this one: Tennessee football: Five most underrated recruits in Vols 2020 class ALLFORTENNESSEE.COM With 23 prospects giving Tennessee football a top 10 recruiting haul for 2020, the Volunteers have many underrated commitments. No matter how great a recru... I agree on these two: Jimmy Holiday Athlete Madison, Miss. Out of Madison High School in Mississippi, Jimmy Holiday brings another element to Tennessee football’s group of wide receivers that has not existed through Jeremy Pruitt’s first two years. Holiday brings immediate speed, allowing Jim Chaney a slot guy to help spread out the field even more than he was able to do this past year. It’s hard to underestimate how big of a deal that is. At 6’1″ 180 pounds, Holiday runs an amazing 4.38 40-time coming out of high school. So he’s already an insane speedster, and he’s got a solid amount of size to go with it. Why, then, is he listed as a three-star across all services? Well, it’s because he primarily played quarterback in high school, and that’s also why he is listed as an athlete. Holiday didn’t get the chance to fully showcase his elite skills at wide receiver, and there are questions about how well he has mastered the fundamentals. There’s one way to overcome that quickly, and he cashed in on that way by becoming an early enrollee. The spring should give Holiday and Pruitt a head start on figuring out what’s best for him. By the way, don’t count out his ability to play quarterback either. With four pro-style guys on the roster this year now that Harrison Bailey has committed, Chaney may be looking for a dual-threat guy to switch things up. Simply put, that gives Holiday another avenue to potentially make an impact. His elite athleticism and early chance to master fundamentals make him underrated. Tee Hodge Running Back Maryville, Tenn. With the conversion of Jeremy Banks to linebacker and this his dismissal, Tennessee football was short a power running back last year. That’s why the Vols brought in Quavaris Crouch on numerous goal-line plays during the season. What’s clear is that Jeremy Pruitt and Jim Chaney have always wanted one power back option to complement all-purpose backs like Ty Chandler and Eric Gray. Tee Hodge immediately provides that. At 6’2″ 230 pounds coming out of Maryville High School, he has a profile similar to Banks or Crouch, but Hodge is specifically a running back. Here’s what you need to know about this guy. He runs a 4.47 40-time. How could a guy with his frame be that fast and still only be a three-star? Well, the questions revolve around his injury history. Hodge suffered a season-ending broken right fibula in 2018, and he then missed portions of the 2019 year as well. By all accounts, though, he hasn’t lost a step. As a result, he’s a major underrated prospect, and the East Tennessee native’s profile could allow him to step in and immediately be an impact player. Hodge would be the perfect change of pace and really complete the profiles of what Chaney needs to run his pro-style offense to the fullest.
  5. Thoughts? TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- With Tua Tagovailoahurt, No. 1 Alabama turned to the defense and Najee Harris to pull out a 35-13 victory over Tennessee on Saturday night. The Crimson Tide (7-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) faced its first test of the season without last season's Heisman Trophy runner-up against the five-touchdown underdogs. Both starting quarterbacks left the game before halftime, and the Volunteers (2-5, 1-3) put up a fight much of the way. Tagovailoa, the leader of a normally high-powered offense, left with an ankle injury in the second quarter and coach Nick Saban said he is likely to miss the next game against Arkansas. He called time out before the play clock ran out after a sack. "I didn't even know he was hurt," Saban said. "He said he felt like he twisted his ankle." Tennessee freshman Brian Maurer had already exited with an unspecified injury, replaced by former starter Jarrett Guarantano. The end result was familiar: Alabama's 13th consecutive win over the rival Vols. Trevon Diggs recovered Guarantano's fumble on fourth-and-goal from the 1 and raced 100 yards for a touchdown to end the threat. Tennessee could have cut the deficit to a touchdown, down 28-13. "This is the first time we had to grind one out and we really had to make plays," Saban said. Vols coach Jeremy Pruitt had some angry words for Guarantano as the quarterback walked toward the sideline, pointing his finger toward him and briefly grabbing at his facemask. Harris was already delivering before Tagovailoa's injury. He wound up running for 105 yards and two touchdowns and adding 48 yards on four catches. It was the second straight 100-yard game for a playmaker often overshadowed by Tagovailoa and the passing game. Alabama got a cushion when reserve wide receiver Slade Bolden threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Miller Forristall in the end zone with 4:55 in the third. Bolden did a celebratory dance toward the sideline, where he was swarmed by teammates. It was a needed pick-me-up with the Vols riding momentum and having cut it to 21-13 with a field goal. The defense then made a stop with Terrell Lewis sacking Guarantano on third down. Tagovailoa finished 11-of-12 passing for 155 yards but also threw an interception on first-and-goal from the 2 when he scrambled around and forced the ball. Backup Mac Jones passed for 72 yards and is expected to get his first start. TAKEAWAY Tennessee: Came closer to the Tide than any other opponent this season. Had 13 penalties for 93 yards. Guarantano was 7 of 16 for 55 yards. Maurer was 5 of 7 for 62 yards with an interception. Alabama: Survived a rare bad decision by Tagovailoa and his injury. A young defense delivered when it had to. Alabama also was heavily penalized, flagged eight times for 93 yards. TARGETING Tennessee middle linebacker Daniel Bituli was ejected for targeting in the second quarter for a hit on receiver Jerry Jeudy near the goal line. The Vols were without linebacker Henry To'o To'o for the first half for a targeting infraction against Mississippi State. ICING THE KICKER When Alabama's Joseph Bulovas lined up for a 41-yard field goal attempt late in the first half, Tennessee called time out. Then another one, and finally a third while Tide fans booed. The strategy may have worked because Bulovas' kick went wide left. UP NEXT Tennessee hosts South Carolina, which lost 38-27 to No. 9 Florida. Alabama hosts Arkansas, coming off a 51-10 loss to No. 11 Auburn.
  6. A Tennessee player was recognized individually for his performance in the form of an SEC weekly award for helping the Vols beat Mississippi State. Guard Trey Smith was named the SEC Co-Offensive Lineman of the Week for his part in Tennessee's 20-10 win against the SEC West's Bulldogs at Neyland Stadium. According to the SEC's release, Smith was Tennessee's highest-graded offensive lineman in the game and totaled 11 knockdown blocks while helping the Vols rush for 190 yards, their highest total against a Power 5 opponent this season. Smith has started all but one game at left guard this season after having his sophomore season derailed and eventually ended by the initial discovery and then the re-forming of blood clots in his lungs in 2018. It wasn't known for most of the offseason if the 2017 Freshman All-American would return to the field this season, but Smith has played and has gotten better and better over the course of the season. The former five-star prospect played his best game of the season on Saturday. “It’s a great feeling to be able to handle somebody up front,” Smith said after the game. “You’ve got to give your credit out to them, though, they played a hell of a game. But it’s always a great feeling when you can impose your will on somebody.
