Vols Digging Their Depth at Linebacker

Last year linebacker was a big question mark for the Vols heading into the season. This year it may be the strength of the defense. Tennessee returns its entire linebacking corps from 2021. They’re hoping the experience and depth will pay huge dividends this fall.

Linebacker coach Brian Jean-Mary:”With the way we play and score, we have to have several linebackers ready to play. The depth especially with the wear and tear that you get in this conference. More quality linebackers you have the better you have a chance to be better on defense.”

Said linebacker Solon Page:”It’s a long season. Hopefully we get the extra game in at the end of the season as well. Having that extra depth in the linebacking room is very crucial, especially because we want to be one of the hardest hitting, hardest playing linebacking corps in the country.”
