Tennessee Spring Game 2014: Josh Malone has big day in Volunteers debut


Head coach Butch Jones and the Tennessee Volunteers hit the field on Saturday for their annual spring scrimmage as they get set to make a run in the SEC in 2014, but a lot of the eyes were one the debut of freshman wide receiver, Josh Malone–and he delivered.

In his debut in front of a huge crowd inside Neyland Stadium, Malone finished the day with six catches for 181 yards and two touchdowns while working with projected starting quarterback, Josh Dobbs. Malone was one of the prized offensive recruits for Jones this past February during National Signing Day, and so far after one scrimmage outing, he is certainly looking the part.

Malone enrolled with Tennessee back in early January, and the early work seems to be paying off as he will most certainly be a crucial part of the Vols making a run in the SEC this season with his game-breaking ability.

In other notable stats from Tennessee’s spring game, Dobbs finished the day 6-for-9 with 199 yards and three scoring strikes, while rushing the ball two times for 59 yards and another score.

The offense in Tennessee country should be rather exciting to take in this upcoming season.
