5. Jauan Jennings
Overall, Quinten Dormady has been the backup quarterback that’s impressed me the most this spring. But since we’re focusing on improvement specifically in this list, I’m going to put Jennings here, because I’ve seen tangible improvement in his mechanics and accuracy as spring progressed. A project of graduate assistant Nick Sheridan, Jennings has had to rebuild his throwing motion and learn a a lot of the details of the position after only playing there for a couple of seasons in high school.
If it all continues to click for him, he’ll be a name to watch in the coming years. He’s athletic to the point that he could play multiple positions, but his development this spring has been encouraging enough to think that the Vols will continue to develop him at quarterback for the foreseeable future.
