He’s visited Tennessee multiple times and is expected to return for the UT-Georgia matchup on Oct. 10.

How He Fits
Tennessee has searched far and wide in the 2016 class for help at the wide receiver position. It was a position of emphasis coming into the 2015 season and as that position has been hit by injuries and struggled mightily on the field, the Vols continue to pound the pavement, looking for any and all help they can get at that spot.
Callaway, a two-way player in high school who could also get a shot at corner at the next level, does a lot well in his film. He’s fluid with the ball in his hands, has great instincts at the receiver position and can also break on a pass defensively and step up in run support.
