  04/02/21 - Jimmy CallowayFr/2024, Tennessee, 5-11, 190 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  When offensive coordinator Alex Golesh was asked this past Saturday to single out receivers who are off to a good start this spring, he selected the unexpected tandem of sixth-year senior Velus Jones, the graduate transfer from Southern California, and sophomore Jimmy Calloway. A 6-foot, 190-pounder from Morrow, Georgia, Calloway had just two receptions for 20 yards last season, with a long of 14 at Vanderbilt. "I think Jimmy Calloway has the right approach every single day," Vols receivers coach Kodi Burns said. "I think he's a kid who's extremely hungry. He was a quarterback in high school, and I think that has translated to the football field as far as being able to pick up the offense really quick and understanding defenses and understanding leverage. "I think that has played to his favor so far." - Chattanooga Times Free Press

  03/28/21 - Jabari SmallSo/2024, Tennessee, 5-09, 210 (DS#999 RB) + More +

  Tennessee offensive coordinator Alex Golesh was asked Saturday afternoon to single out those who have performed well through two spring football practices for the Volunteers, and he was happy to oblige. "Jabari Small has been really impressive," Golesh said. "We were all excited to see what he can do. As far as guys who have stood out, I would say that Jabari has been one for sure, and probably that O-line group as a whole. "They are knowing how the operation works and are getting on the right people and are playing fast." Small is Tennessee's top returning rusher from last year, having amassed 26 carries for 117 yards as a freshman. His best showing was 48 yards on six carries in the 42-17 thumping of a depleted Vanderbilt, but he did play in all 10 games. - Chattanooga Times Free Press

  03/07/21 - John MinceyJr/2022, Tennessee, 6-2, 276 (DS#999 DE) + More +

  Tennessee football's front seven is getting thinner in depth. John Mincey, a junior defensive lineman for the Vols, announced on Friday his intentions to enter the NCAA Transfer Portal. He is the 24th Tennessee player to either transfer out, or enter the portal, since the end of the 2020 season. The 6-foot-3, 276-pound Mincey also played some outside linebacker at Tennessee. His departure takes on adding meaning with loss of fellow pass rushers Deandre Johnson, who transferred to Miami, and Kivon Bennett, who was dismissed after getting arrested. Mincey appeared in 24 games in three years with the Vols, never quite cracking the starting lineup. - Knoxville News Sentinel

  Former Tennessee linebacker Henry To'o To'o is strongly considering transferring to a rival school, according to his father. Iese To'o To'o told BamaOnLine, a 247Sports affiliate, that his son is "heavily leaning towards Alabama." To'o To'o entered the NCAA transfer portal on Jan. 20, two days after Tennessee fired coach Jeremy Pruitt. He's enrolled in classes at UT while eyeing his next move. The 6-foot-2, 225-pound To'o To'o was a two-year starting inside linebacker at Tennessee. Because the 2020 season did not count against an athlete's eligibility, To'o To'o will remain a sophomore next season. He made 148 tackles during his Vols career, including a team-high 76 in 2020. - Montgomery Advertiser

  Announcing a decision to refrain from the NCAA transfer portal may not be deemed newsworthy from a traditional point of view, but Tennessee's football program could use anything to celebrate amid a continuing exodus. Sophomore offensive lineman Darnell Wright, the No. 10 prospect nationally in the 2019 signing class, revealed Monday night that he would remain with the Volunteers. The 6-foot-6, 330-pounder from Huntington, West Virginia, started nine games this past season, mostly at right tackle. - Chattanooga Times Free Press

  Tennessee football offensive lineman Jahmir Johnson entered the transfer portal on Wednesday. Johnson is the first Vol to enter the portal since Jeremy Pruitt was fired Monday. Tennessee fired Pruitt for cause Monday, citing an investigation that revealed sweeping recruiting violations within the football program. Chancellor Donde Plowman called the investigation's findings "stunning" based on the amount of violations and number of people involved. Johnson played in 24 games and made 17 starts in three seasons at Tennessee. - Knoxville News Sentinel

  01/18/21 - Henry Too TooSo/2023, Tennessee, 6-2, 225 (DS#2 ILB) + More +

  Tennessee has fired football coach Jeremy Pruitt, two assistants and seven members of the Volunteers' recruiting and support staff for cause after an internal investigation found what the university chancellor called "serious violations of NCAA rules." Chancellor Donde Plowman said Pruitt was responsible for overseeing the program. Tennessee has been conducting an internal investigation since at least the middle of November into allegations of recruiting violations. Also fired Monday were assistant football coaches Brian Niedermeyer and Shelton Felton, four members of the on-campus football recruiting staff, the director and assistant director of football player personnel and a football analyst/quality control coach. The chancellor said the potential NCAA issues involved Level I and II violations with a number of people and incidents. NCAA investigators became more actively involved within the past 10 days. - AP College Football

  01/15/21 - Josh PalmerSr/2021, Tennessee, 6-1, 210 (DS#50 WR) + More +

  Josh Palmer has his sights set on the next chapter of his football career. The senior wide receiver said farewell to Tennessee in an Instagram post Thursday, confirming what has been expected for months - that Palmer would depart for the NFL rather than exercise the option to play an additional senior season in 2021. Palmer is set to play in the Senior Bowl on Jan. 30 in Mobile, Alabama, in an opportunity to showcase his skills for NFL scouts. Teammate Trey Smith, who also is headed for the NFL draft, is also on the Senior Bowl roster. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Palmer was one of Tennessee's top players in 2020, when he caught 33 passes for 475 yards and four touchdowns. He came within one reception of matching his single-season career high for receptions despite this season only featuring 10 games. - Knoxville News Sentinel
