Tennessee Football’s offensive line continues to get high praise

Tennessee Football’s offensive line has been getting high praise in recent weeks and that high praise continues thanks to Cole Cubelic.

Trey Smith and Cade Mays are probably going to be Tennessee football’s best offensive linemen in 2020. Both players were named Preseason All-Americans by Sporting News.

Although Smith and Mays will be the anchors of Tennessee’s offense and have some high expectations to live up to, that doesn’t mean that the rest of Tennessee’s offensive line consists of scrubs.

Head coach Jeremy Pruitt has made it a priority in recruiting to bring in top-tier offensive linemen, including Mays’ younger brother Cooper Mays.

Another elite offensive lineman that Tennessee will field in 2020 is offensive tackle, Wanya Morris. Alongside Smith, Morris is also seen as a future All-American and one of the best young tackles in the country.

After only one year under his belt, SEC Network analyst Cole Cubelic listed Morris as one of the top tackles in the SEC.

Morris comes in at No. 5 in Cubelic’s rankings which is impressive for an incoming Sophomore. Cubelic really likes Tennessee’s offensive line this year. He also placed center Brandon Kennedy and guard Trey Smith in their respective top-five rankings. He’s also ranked the Vols with the No. 2 offensive line in the SEC and the No. 4 offensive line in college football.

After Tennessee’s offense struggled last season, hopefully, a top-five offensive line in the country will help the Vols’ offense be a little better this fall.

With Smith, Morris, Kennedy, and potentially Mays in the trenches for the Vols, you can’t forget about five-star Darnell Wright also joining them. He’s also a rising sophomore and adds to the elite talent on the Vols’ offensive line.

Tennessee has a lot of talent on the offensive line and it’s clear that they will have some high expectations coming into the 2020 season. The question is, will they live up to the hype?
