Tennessee Fall Camp, Day 13. Practice Notes and Observations

Tennessee Quarterback Maurer

Tennessee hit the field for the 13th time this fall, working at Haslam Practice Field Thursday morning.

Offensive coordinator and tight end’s coach Alex Golesh had his group working both on blocking and in routes on air in the limited viewing portion Thursday. Miles Campbell was receiving some extra reps in the blocking drills as Golesh wasn’t pleased with his fundamentals. However, Redshirt-junior Jacob Warren looked great in the routes on-air portion.

Quarterback reps orders stayed the same with Joe Milton batting leadoff followed by Hendon Hooker and Harrison Bailey. Brian Maurer was absent from practice but remained at Tennessee and was attending classes Wednesday at UT began its fall semester.

Milton had the least amount of balls hit the ground of any of the three quarterbacks Thursday. By my count, Milton threw three incompletions, under throwing an out route to Jalin Hyatt, overthrowing Addison Coby on a stop-and-go, and throwing an accurate slant that Cedric Tillman dropped.

Bailey was excellent Thursday, too, especially on the short to intermediate passes. Hooker was up-and-down but did make a few nice throws— especially down the field.

Javonte Payton continues to look like a reliable receiving option. The Mississippi State transfer had excellent routes on-air Thursday and looks like one of the Vols’ sharpest route runners.

Offensive lineman Ollie Lane and linebacker Matt Gaca were working on the side.

Defensive units worked on turnover drills, and Rodney Garner got after his crew less than normal on Thursday. However, Omari Thomas looked good in drills and is another solid interior defensive line option. The depth continues to look good on the interior of the defensive line.

Tennessee will be back on the practice field Friday morning for practice number 14. We will continue to keep you updated on fall camp 2021 here at Rocky Top Insider.

  1. All the hoopla will be finalized very soon as Coach MUST specify which kids will be given the first opportunity to perform as his front line representatives.
    Will his first choices be successful? I would hope so but the odds of that being true are? Opinions are like ass holes we all got one.
    Therefore take what these sideline jockeys say and write with a grain of salt and buckle up believe in your prediction and enjoy and support the results of actual finish just like the Coaches have too do. Next man up and Go Big Orange.
