The unofficial start to the college football season is just week away as SEC Media Days will kick off at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta on July 16.

On Tuesday, Tennessee announced that wide receiver Marquez Callaway, defensive lineman Kyle Phillips and tight end Eli Wolf were selected to accompany first-year head coach Jeremy Pruitt to the annual, week-long event.

The three players, as well as Pruitt are slated to meet with local and national media on Wednesday during the morning session. The session can be seen live on SEC Network.

According to a press release by the Tennessee athletic department, Callaway and Wolf are the first players to represent the program at media days since 2015 when then-junior quarterback Josh Dobbs and junior defensive back Cam Sutton attended with Butch Jones.
Phillips, the lone senior of the three, is entering his final campaign with the Vols after appearing in all 12 games during the 2017 season. Phillips finished with 35 tackles and two sacks in 2017.

Callaway enters 2018 as one of Tennessee’s top wide receivers. Despite battling injury last season, Callaway managed to finish his sophomore season with 24 catches for over 400 yards and five touchdowns.

Wolf, the younger brother of former Tennessee tight end Ethan Wolf saw action in nine game last season. Following a solid performance in spring camp and the Orange and White game, Wolf was named the offense’s most improved player.
