After 12 practices and three scrimmages, some questions for Vols get positive answers

Tennessee football coach Jeremy Pruitt shouts as the Vols warm up for the Orange and White spring game Saturday at Neyland Stadium.

KNOXVILLE - Two months ago, the Times Free Press posed five questions facing the Tennessee Volunteers football program heading into spring practice.

Today we take a look at whether 12 practices and three scrimmages provided any clarity.

1. Can the early enrollees help immediately?

The position that most needs immediate production help - offensive line - had three 2019 early enrollees who went through the rigors of the spring, with Wanya Morris working his way toward first-team repetitions by the end. He's the most likely to earn a spot in the rotation, if not a starting one. Eric Gray missed some practice due to injury, but the coaching staff was impressed by his knowledge of the game as well as his work ethic. Quavaris Crouch and Jaylen McCullough were a couple other players who showed moments of promise, moments that will become more necessary as spring turns into summer, which turns into preseason camp.
