Josh Heupel assesses Tennessee’s quarterbacks following second scrimmage

Tennessee scrimmaged for the second time during spring practices Saturday at Haslam Field.

Following the Vols’ second scrimmage, head coach Josh Heupel provided his assessment of Tennessee’s quarterbacks.

“I thought Hendon Hooker did a really good job managing some things,” Heupel said. “Joe Milton III made a bunch of plays today – a scramble, a deep throw down the middle of the football field. He’s been really consistent throughout spring practice.

“Tayven Jackson, as a young guy, continues to get a bunch of reps. He’s learning from every single one of them. Just like all of our young guys, the game – there’s a lot of moving parts and it’s true at the quarterback position. I love that he’s resilient and comes back and competes the next play on no matter what’s going on with previous play. He’s got a bright future.”
