In short, he's a handful.
''He's really good,'' Vol defensive coordinator John Chavis said this week. ''They get the ball to him, and he does a lot of things. He could be (the best UT has faced). He's an outstanding player.
''But they've got four tight ends they play a good bit. That's a big part of their offense.''
Asked how Notre Dame utilizes Fasano to exploit his talents, Chavis became uncharacteristically evasive.
''There's not a lot that I'm going to comment on,'' the coordinator said. ''Matchup-wise, we'd like to have a safety on him, rather than a linebacker, because he runs well. But that's about all I'm going to say from that standpoint. He's a good player, and they use him well in their offense.''
