    Reaction: WFT Reveals New Team Name as the Washington Commanders

    With Tennessee’s 2022 signing class complete and National Signing Day in the rearview, the Vols now turn their focus to the 2023 class and spring practice.

    In today’s age of college football with the transfer portal, rosters are never fully set, and Tennessee will almost certainly add more players before beginning fall practice in August.

    Still, most of Tennessee’s roster is set. Let’s look at what the Vols’ depth chart could look like when the season rolls around.
