Vols Have A Lot Of 4-Star Guys On The Bench

Mike Strange of The Knoxville News Sentinel makes an interesting observation today, pointing out that Bruce Pearl currently has five 4-star recruits on his “scout team.”

“I was telling Brian (Williams) and some other players, this is not like a regular practice,” said one of those 4-star backups, Kenny Hall.  “It’s like you’re playing a game against another D-I school.”  Pearl says the backup unit looks “like five guys who will be playing a lot for us next year.” 

But with his team struggling in the present — the Vols are just 9-10 after a hot 7-0 start — some UT backers might be wondering why Hall, Jeronne Maymon, Jordan McRae, Trae Golden and Renaldo Woolridge aren’t seeing more action this year. 

Truth be told, most of those players have failed to earn more minutes when they’ve been given playing time this season.  Which makes one wonder just how good they’ll be when they do play “a lot” for UT next year.
