It’s hard to measure just how important the leadership senior receiver Jauan Jennings provides to Tennessee.

According to Jeremy Pruitt, what you see is what you get from Jennings.

“Jauan has passion for the game, he has passion for his teammates, he has passion for the University of Tennessee, he shows it every day,” Pruitt said following Tennessee’s 41-21 win over the Gamecocks.

“(Jauan) is consistent in the way he prepares, the way he practices and I think that’s contagious.”

The senior had his best performance of the season on Saturday, catching seven passes for 174 yards and two touchdowns and with Brian Maurer out for the game and Jarrett Guaratano getting hurt during in the contest, Jennings had to take some snaps at quarterback, too.

Following the game, Jennings poured his heart out when asked about what Tennessee’s latest win means to him.
