Butch recaps Tennessee's spring season

Find out what Tennessee coach Butch Jones said about his Volunteers after the completion of spring football.

The finale to Tennessee's spring practice schedule was cut short Saturday by Mother Nature, however, the Volunteers got in a half of work at the DISH Orange & White game at Neyland Stadium.

Quinten Dormady impressed as the rising junior is in a four-way competition to be Tennessee's new starting quarterback. The Texas native completed all 10 of his pass attempts for 120 yards with two touchdowns, including a 1-yard completion to wide receiver Jauan Jennings and a 19-yard pass to tight end Eli Wolf.

Jarrett Guarantano was 4-of-5 passing for 41 yards with three carries for minus-8 yards.

Tight end Ethan Wolf was the leading receiver with 28 yards on three catches. Jennings also caught three balls for a total of 23 yards.

Walk-on linebacker Landon Knoll led all defenders with five tackles (two solo). Linebacker Daniel Bituli (two solo) and safety Nigel Warrior (one solo) followed with four tackles apiece.

Rising sophomore Carlin Fils-Aime was the leading rusher with 32 yards on seven attempts. Prior to being helped off with an injury, walk-on Taelor Dowdy ran for 22 yards on eight rushes. Starter John Kelly was one of roughly 20 players held out from action.
