Tennessee Vols: Wide receivers a key strength of Vol offense

Orange & White Nation

In just two weeks, we’ll get to see Tennessee quarterback Jarrett Guarantano play pitch and catch with some of his top targets.

Those wide outs look like the difference makers right now on this team…

Earlier this spring, senior wide receiver Marquez Callaway told the media he believes his unit can be among the very best in the Southeastern Conference.

His new offensive coordinator, Jim Chaney, sure sounds like he agrees.

“I think that you look at the strengths of your team right now. I would argue that maybe our experience at the wide receiver corps,” Chaney said. “Those kids are out there. They’re making plays. They understand things.

“I’ll add a new concept, (and) they’ve seen it before. We’re not reinventing the wheel here. I would argue probably the experience of those senior receivers is something to kind of hang your hat on a little bit right now.” 

Tennessee’s top five receivers from last year are either juniors or seniors.

The Orange and White game is 6 p.m. April 13.
