The Tennessee Volunteers won the rubber match with the Kentucky Wildcats in the SEC Basketball Tournament at Amalie Arena in Tampa.
The Vols face Texas A&M Sunday afternoon in the SEC Tournament Championship.
Redshirt freshman Eli Wolf, younger brother of senior tight end Ethan Wolf, just recently received a scholarship from the University of Tennessee, and found out in the one of the neatest ways……by surprise in practice.
Truly, this moment encapsulates the joy and enthusiasm that is generated by college athletics.

The Associated Press reports that University of Tennessee Volunteers coach Butch Jones announced Thursday that he named Justin Worley would start the Aug. 31 season opener at quarterback against Utah State. Offensive coordinator Mike Bajakian said Worley’s progress and track record made it an “easy and apparent decision” to give him the starting spot.

It appears that things are rolling well on the Rocky Top recruiting trail as Four-star QB Austin Kendall committed to the Vols as a good start on their 2016 recruiting class. It looks as though Tennessee may have the third straight strong recruiting class in a row and may start reaping big dividends in the near future as Coach Butch Jones has been successful in recruiting several legacy players who will fit the Vol for Life mold.

Five players from Butch Jones’ highly touted freshman class have family members who also played football for the Volunteers. A sixth freshman — wide receiver Vic Wharton — is the nephew of former Tennessee basketball player Brandon Wharton. The legacy players are Dillon Bates, son of Vol favorite Bill Bates, Elliot and Evan Berry, twin defensive back sons of All-American Eric Berry, defensive back Todd Kelly, Jr., and linebacker Neiko Creamer, son of Andre Creamer. Dillon Bates spoke to UT Sports in a media session that was posted at NCAA.com.

Tyler Conway at Bleacher Report is proud to let the world know that Kahlil McKenzie plans to strap on the pads and don the white helmet with the big T in the center at Tennessee for the Volunteers. The five star prospect plays defensive tackle and is the son of Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie, who starred as a linebacker at Tennessee and played parts of five seasons in the NFL.

In a sidenote, in what is a sort of bizarre twist of fate, 49ers All-Pro Offensive Lineman Mike Iupati is in the above video, as the editor of Shayn Roby College Sports sometimes works in the physical education department with Toby Howell, Mike’s high school coach at Western High in Anaheim, California.
