KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee is quickly discovering the frustration and fascination involved in having such a young team.
The Volunteers have added a heralded 32-man recruiting class, and many of the newcomers will get substantial playing time.
Tennessee coach Butch Jones Jones says the Vols can't use their youth ''as a crutch, an excuse.'' He made his point by canceling the players' scheduled interviews Monday after a sluggish practice.
One week into training camp, Tennessee's newcomers already are making an impact.
The freshmen garnering the most attention are running back Jalen Hurd and receiver Josh Malone, both rated as five-star recruits by at least one service. But it isn't only the elite recruits making an early statement.
Offensive tackle Coleman Thomas and cornerback Emmanuel Moseley, both consensus three-star recruits, are probable starters.
