Insider Report: Vol targets abound in UA All-America Game

InsideTennessee's analysis on the 2016 Under Armour All-America Game on Saturday in Orlando.

ORLANDO, Fla. — Tennessee was represented well in Orlando Saturday for the 2016 edition of the Under Armour All-America Game inside the Citrus Bowl. The Vols had two commitments and a target seriously considering Tennessee on the field at different points during the day as Team Highlight throttled Team Armour 27-0. 

Jarrett Guarantano didn't turn in his most impressive game, but he was on the run for much of the afternoon as he was chased by Scout's No. 1 overall 2016 prospect, defensive lineman Rashan Gary. Guarantano, a Scout four-star who committed to the Vols in April, ended the day 1-for-7 for 18 yards. He was forced to throw the ball away once after a breakdown along the offensive line and was also the victim of a few drops.

Protecting the East Region's No. 1 quarterback at times was offensive lineman Landon Dickerson, the No. 1-rated offensive guard in North Carolina's 2016 class who has Tennessee in his top 3, along with Auburn and Florida State. Dickerson spent most of the afternoon at left guard, even pulling some, and showcased his aggressive physicality and quick hands in the trenches with a couple of knockdowns. The 6-foot-5, 305-pounder didn't give up a sack and searched out people to hit.

Marquill Osborne started the day with a little production before Team Highlight stopped throwing the ball to his side of the field. The Tennessee commit and Scout three-star cornerback recorded five tackles in his squad's defeat.
