    9. Evan Berry

    Evan Berry-1-2

    Evan Berry was best known as one of the younger brothers of former Vol legend Eric Berry when he signed on with Tennessee in 2014. But in 2015, Evan made a name for himself and put his own name in UT’s record book.

    As a sophomore, Evan Berry ripped off three kickoff returns for a touchdown and totaled 804 kickoff return yards. The touchdowns tied Willie Gault for most in a single season, and the yards were the second most in school history for a season. Berry’s average of 38.29 yards per return was the most in school history and fell just shy of the all-time NCAA record of 38.32 by J.J. Nelson of UAB in 2014.

    Berry will have a shot to play some on defense in 2016, and he can further cement his name in the record books with some more kickoff returns this upcoming season.
