Jeremy Pruitt updates fall camp, QBs after second scrimmage

KNOXVILLE — Tennessee finished practice No. 14 ahead of the 2018 season, the second scrimmage of fall training camp consisting of 131 plays.

With classes beginning Wednesday and game week nearly a week away, each practice becomes important in establishing starters and play-makers throughout each position unit.

Jeremy Pruitt did not name a starting quarterback following the second scrimmage and issued the following comments on the position that “will stay status quo until we figure it out.”

Pruitt said all four signal-callers received a shot during the second scrimmage and that “we feel like they deserve it” but that “probably hindered the offense’s timing and stuff there.”

Pruitt went on to say that “the number of quarterbacks we played today probably wasn’t fair” and that it is “hard to get in a rhythm when you’re just playing eight snaps at a time.”

True freshman quarterback JT Shrout was also mentioned by Pruitt.

“JT hit a wall early in camp, but has responded,” he said. “It’s starting to slow down for him, we wanted to give him some opportunities today.”
