    Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt met with the media Thursday afternoon following practice and revealed that Vols offensive lineman Cade Mays had won his appeal with the NCAA, though Mays still needs to be cleared by the SEC before he becomes immediately eligible.

    Pruitt discussed with the media his thoughts on Mays’ chances of being cleared by the NCAA, as well as how many of his players are currently participating in practice as the season opener approaches. Tennessee’s third-year head coach also discussed his thoughts on his defense’s pass rush, as well as the current situation at tight end.
