5-star early enrollee Wanya Morris recaps his first practice at Tennessee
During the first season of the Jeremy Pruitt era at Tennessee, the program was held back in many regards due to having arguably the worst offensive line in the Southeastern Conference. Losing Brandon Kennedy to injury and Trey Smith to a medical issue exasperated an already dire situation on Rocky Top in 2018.
With the program now officially starting its run to the 2019 season, things are already beginning to look up on the line of scrimmage thanks to the offseason efforts of the program’s strength and conditioning staff and the hard work of the individuals on the roster. The Volunteers now feature several linemen that look the part, now they have to go out and execute.
Of course, adding a five-star prospect to the mix is certainly going to help matters and Tennessee did just that this spring with the signing of Georgia native Wanya Morris from Grayson High School. The nation’s No. 6-rated offensive tackle prospect in the 2019 recruiting cycle is already getting reps at left tackle and as long as he continues to develop, he will likely start at that position when Tennessee hosts Georgia State on Aug. 31.
