Tennessee Names Jeremy Pruitt New Head Coach; Press Conference Set

And it’s time for fall camp! The drama surrounding the Tennessee football program dating back to last year is now on the back burner. The 2018 season is in full swing, and with a new era, Vols fans everywhere are feeling excited.

First-year head coach Jeremy Pruitt spoke to the media Thursday to preview fall camp, which begins on Friday. The Vols will have 25 practices between now and their first game against the West Virginia Mountaineers on Sept. 1.

Pruitt covered a lot of ground in his press conference. You can see the full video of it above. But for a quick rundown and not generic coach speak, we gave you some important tidbits. These are our biggest takeaways from Jeremy Pruitt’s press conference.

1. Everybody is able to practice, even if limited, except for JJ Peterson.

Tennessee football enters fall camp with 109 guys on the roster. It’ll be 110 when JJ Peterson, a four-star recruiting in the 2018 class, finishes up some academic things so he can enroll. But outside of Peterson, everybody is able to practice.

Chance Hall and Jauan Jennings have been fully cleared but will be a bit limited since they haven’t been able to participate in anything since last fall. As a result, it’ll take some time for them to get back into football shape.

Meanwhile, Trey Smith won’t be limited once he’s cleared for contact work since he worked with the team in the summer. But until Aug. 19 or Aug. 20, he’s only cleared for non-contact practices. Smith should be good to go, though, when the season starts.

2. Everybody gets similar reps early on.

There are no mental reps for champions of life who have five-star hearts and are trying to build a program brick by brick. Okay, all the Butch Jones sayings are out the window now. Let’s get to business for the new era.

Tennessee football will give everybody equal reps as much as possible early on under Pruitt. He basically proved that in the spring. And that will continue in the fall with the exception of the few guys who are limited. Pruitt made it clear they want to find guys who can play. And that means reps for everybody involved.
