KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee freshman Jashon Robertson's improbable rise to a potential starting role underscores the Volunteers' precarious situation on the offensive line.
Robertson didn't enroll in time for spring practice. He started training camp on the defensive line before moving to offense. Now he's regularly working as a first-team guard in practice.
Tennessee is attempting to replace all five of last year's starting linemen. Less than two weeks before the Aug. 31 season opener against Utah State, the Vols are seeking the right combination.
Tennessee opened training camp with Jacob Gilliam at left tackle, Marcus Jackson at left guard, Mack Crowder at center, Kyler Kerbyson at right guard and Coleman Thomas at right tackle. But the Vols recently moved Kerbyson to right tackle and tried Robertson at right guard.

Doesn't sound good... I'm not overly optimistic about UT's personnel in the trenches. :(
