Vols Freshman Linebacker Will Ignont Drawing Plenty of Praise

You don’t expect a freshman football player to draw a lot of accolades in the first two weeks of fall camp, but that’s not the case for Vols freshman linebacker Will Ignont.
While he may not start the season opener against Georgia Tech, it has been hard for defensive coordinator Bob Shoop to ignore what Ignont has been doing in practice.
Said Shoop:”Ignont. He’s an alpha-male. He has got some of that ‘it factor’ to him. He is highly football intelligent. He is very confident out there. He is absolutely 100 percent making freshman mistakes. But at the same time, you can see that it’s not too, too big for him. And I’m not sure if it will be in 2017, but I think Tennessee football fans have a pretty good player for the future in him.”
