Josh Heupel impressed with Tennessee's level of retention: 'We're way ahead of where we finished' in the spring
When it comes to the summer progression of the Vols, Josh Heupel must have really liked what he saw from his team on the practice field on Wednesday.
Following the first day of fall camp on Rocky Top, Heupel was asked to share his thoughts on the level of retention he saw from his players on the practice field.
“I really feel like, for pretty much everybody on the offensive unit, we’re way ahead of where we finished – offensively,” Heupel answered. “I mentioned that on the defensive side of the ball, too. We’ve continued to become smarter, more understanding of what we’re trying to do and how to operate throughout the summer – in that way.”
While he may have seen enough to make that comment, Heupel shared that it is way too early to grade the performance of any of the team’s quarterbacks that are competing for the starting role in the offense.
“Quarterbacks, I saw them all miss throws, I saw them all make throws. They’ll have a lot more as we go along,” Heupel added.
