Much has been made about Tennessee’s scheme switch from a 4-3 defense to a 3-4.
Coach Jeremy Pruitt thinks it’s rather overblown. WNML’s Josh Ward plays audio from a Pruitt interview with former Tennessee quarterback Erik Ainge on Rocky Talk.
Pruitt said the best defenses can play multiple fronts, which he intends to do with the Vols this fall.
The conversation was sparked by the position change of Jonathan Kongbo from defensive end to linebacker. The change really just means Kongbo will be put in a position to primarily rush the passer.
Ward discusses the differences in the defense on the podcast. He’s also joined by SEC Country’s Blake Morgan for a recruiting chat.
