Freshman Clips: Vols QB Jarrett Guarantano

Allow InsideTennessee to take you inside Tennessee football practices to get a look at Vols freshman quarterback Jarrett Guarantano.

Will he or won't he?

Jarrett Guarantano is one of the more ballyhooed field generals signed by Tennessee in the last two decades. With four-year starter Joshua Dobbs graduated, Guarantano will be in a four-man race alongside Quinten Dormady, Sheriron Jones and Will McBride to take over as the Big Orange's "CEO."

Just over two years from the day the former Scout four-star prospect verbally committed to Tennessee, the quarterback will get a chance to put some of his skills on display in the DISH Orange & White Game at Neyland Stadium on April 22.

Who wins the job will be a decision made by Butch Jones, offensive coordinator Larry Scott, quarterbacks coach Mike Canales and Tennessee's staff. That job may not be decided upon until late August and just prior to the Vols kicking off against Georgia Tech in Atlanta on Sept. 4.

The 19-year-old Guarantano is the son of a Rutgers Hall of Fame member and participated as an Under Armour All-American game, which was the last time most Vols fans saw the youngster compete as he redshirted in 2016.

Let InsideTennessee provide a glimpse at the not-too-distant future of the quarterback position on Rocky Top with video above of Guarantano learning during his first full semester of college.
