The Vols are working towards an important scrimmage on Tuesday that will go a long ways in setting the depth chart. Below are Volunteer Country notes and observations from the outing. Ekeler EnergyMike Ekeler is full of energy, but with full pads coming on today, he was full of life. He made a line straight for Byron Young and Roman Harrison during stretches to let them know they better be ready to go when things got going. He was very focal during his group period as well. Demanding More of James Pearce James Pearce has a chance to be a factor for the Vols as 2022 goes on https://www.volunteersstore.com/Princeton_Fant_Jersey, and today, the coaching staff was demanding more of him. He has some of the quickest feet that I have seen for a player his size in a long time, but the staff is now demanding excellence as they work towards Tuesday scrimmage. Pearce will have his opportunities to get after the passer and prove that he has a rotational spot as a freshman. So it is important they get him up to speed in a hurry.
