News and Notes

  • Len’Neth Whitehead, who committed as a top 100 athlete, starts at running back. Most analyst thought he would end up playing linebacker at this level. He could still land there, as we’ve seen Jeremy Pruitt make several position changes during camps, but he’ll play offense for now.
  • Reginald Perry, who committed as a three-star defensive lineman, is listed as an offensive lineman. Tennessee didn’t sign an offensive tackle in the 2020 class, so Perry at 6-6, 310 pounds could fill that role. The Volunteers have one tackle committed to their 2021 class, so depth here is a bit of a future concern.
  • Jimmy Holiday, who signed as a three-star athlete and played quarterback in high school, is officially listed as a receiver. Expect to see him get some wildcat opportunities somewhere down the road.
  • Bryce Thompson officially swapped his number from 20 to 0.
  • Trevon Flowers swapped from 25 to 1.
  • Kenneth George Jr. is now wearing No. 5.
  • Deangelo Gibbs is now officially listed as a receiver.
  • Jordan Allen, now a tight end, is wearing No. 86.
