FOOTBALL

All-Pro Pacman Jones speaks to the Vols

Adam "Pacman" Jones was in Knoxville yesterday to visit with Team 118 and Head Coach Butch Jones.  Pacman spoke to the team and also participated in a work out with them. Jones played at West Virginia at the same time that Butch Jones was the WR for the Mountaineers.  Adam Jones is just the latest high profile speaker that Coach Jones has brought in to speak to the Vols, some previous speakers include Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and former Denver Bronco Maurice Clarett.

Jon Gruden in Knoxville?…… Grumors?

Former Super Bowl head coach Jon Gruden will be visiting Knoxville this weekend as a guest instructor for Tennessee's quarterback camp.  Having such a high profile figure like Gruden in attendance this weekend could make a big impact on some quarterback prospects that Tennessee is targeting, one high profile former Vol has been rumored to be making an appearance this weekend.

That's right….. Jim Bob Cooter ladies and gentleman.  I kid, but man what an awesome name for a former Tennessee quarterback.  Another name that Tennessee fans love is Peyton Manning, who is the real former Vol rumored to show up at quarterback camp this weekend.

All-American

Senior LB AJ Johnson was named as Preseason Third Team All-American by Sporting News.

BASKETBALL

Tyndall Holds first Workout

Donnie Tyndall held his first team workout as Tennessee head coach yesterday. Here is some video from UTsports.com covering Tyndall's first workout.

Tyndall is still waiting for three members of his signing class to join the Vols.  Four-star signee Detrick Mostella is on campus but still waiting to hear from the NCAA clearinghouse on his eligibility while Eric McKnight and Tariq Owens are expected to join the Vols in July.

Recruiting

Five-star DT Kahlil McKenzie has announced he will be making his college decision on July 10th live at Nike's Opening camp.  Mckenzie will be choosing between the Vols and the Arizona Wildcats,  with the Vols being the heavy favorite to land the monstrous defensive tackle.

In other news, 5-star dual-threat QB prospect Torrance Gibson will be visiting UT this weekend to participate in the UT quarterback camp.  Gibson announced the Vols as his leader tied with Auburn but said Auburn "has a slight lead"…… makes sense right?

In other news Nick Senzel was named a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American for the Vol Baseball club!
