Dontavius Blair (2014 class) – West Alabama
2017 Season: Started 10 games
Every Vol fan knows the story of Dontavius Blair at Tennessee. He was a heralded four-star JUCO offensive tackle who was supposed to come in and start immediately in Butch Jones’ second year at UT. But he was beat out by a walk-on at left tackle, and he became the biggest bust in the Butch Jones era. Blair ended up at West Alabama and started 10 games at tackle for them last season.
Charles Mosley (2014 class) – Austin Peay
2017 Season: Started all 12 games
Mosley started out as a defensive tackle with the Vols, then he transitioned over to offense. He was gargantuan when he came in to Tennessee, and he never saw the field because of his conditioning and because he was moved around so much. He ended up leaving the program and wound up at Austin Peay. He started every game for them on the offensive line last season.
