KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee football’s second scrimmage of the spring was closed, but it didn’t take long for details to emerge.
Among the most glaring was the play of the defensive backs, a position group new coach Jeremy Pruitt has kept out of the spotlight and not discussed much.
It appears now there was good reason for that.
But the defensive backs aren’t the only concern.
A front seven that should be dominating against a thinned-out offensive line isn’t.
The offensive line, coached by Will Friend, is showing more fight and holding its own against all odds.
The tailbacks, who Pruitt has said he is not overly impressed by, continue to break tackles and make yards.
Receivers Marquez Callaway and Brandon Johnson continue to have a solid spring session. Tyler Byrd found the end zone, as well.
Mike Griffith and Josh Ward discuss Scrimmage No. 2, and their thoughts on it being closed in a state that’s crazy about the Vols.
