Three Key Players For Tennessee Players To Build Around In 2013

Head coach Butch Jones signed 21 new players for the 2013 season, with the hopes that at least a few of these guys evolve into starters in a short period of time. With just five wins last year, the Volunteers will have quite a few holes to fill between now and the fall. Here are three of the top recruits based on their chance to make an immediate impact.

MarQuez North

Nearly every recruiting expert, and many College fantasy football experts, agree that MarQuez North is the top recruit for Tennessee in 2013. He was the second-ranked wide receiver in the country, ranking inside the top 40 overall according to nearly every respectable list.

Tennessee has been saved in recent years by go-to wide receivers, whether it be Da’Rick Rogers or Justin Hunter. North has both size (6’3”) and speed (4.48 40-yard dash) to fit nicely into that role as soon as this season. The question is, will he be developed with his fellow classmate, or the returning starter at quarterback?

Joshua Dobbs

With all due respect to Justin Worley, it appears as though Joshua Dobbs will be the quarterback of the future for Tennessee. Known as a pro style quarterback who sees the field well, Dobbs seems to fit the scheme Jones likes to run. Even if Worley gets the majority of snaps in 2013, the future at the moment is Dobbs. He should get a chance to take some reps and get a chance to prove that he can step in right away and start.

Jalen Reeves-Maybin

What makes Reeves-Maybin so unique is that he has enough versatility to play a variety of positions. For that reason, it seems nearly impossible that he won’t find some significant time on the field in 2013. He was labeled a safety on signing day, but some think he could also play linebacker or cornerback if Coach Jones decides to go in that direction. He was also instrumental in getting others to commit to the SEC team even after a subpar season. Tennessee appears to have a safety who could really develop into a star with some hard work, and based on his track record, he will definitely put that work in.
