Running back Jaylen Wright offering ‘huge flashes’ so far in spring practice

Pretty much every position on the Tennessee offense is up for grabs this spring, as Josh Heupel and his staff figure out what they’ve got on this roster. A length list of transfers has opened things all the way up, even for a few freshmen that typically might not see chances at playing time this early on.

One of those newcomers that has generated a little bit of buzz has been freshman tailback Jaylen Wright, who committed to Tennessee as a three-star prospect. What makes Wright intriguing is his different style, which offers speed and agility — something Tennessee quite frankly doesn’t have much of after Eric Gray and Ty Chandler exited the program.
