Calbert vying for playing time

Trey Smith is on every preseason All-American list, a fitting honor for one of the best guards in college football. Georgia transfer Cade Mays has been penciled in as a starter (as long as he is granted immediate eligibility) and has joined Smith as a projected first-round pick and Outland Trophy candidate. Brandon Kennedy was granted a sixth year of eligibility to return as the starting center for the Volunteers. And there's also Wanya Morris and Darrell Wright - five-star recruits who played prominent roles last year for Tennessee.

For many, it seems like the Tennessee starting offensive line is set. Just don't tell Krojhn Calbert.

The former Pioneer standout is still being counted on to play a big role for the Vols this fall, if college football decides to play a season during the COVID-19 pandemic. Calbert is coming off a strong finish to his redshirt sophomore season, where he earned starts in five games. The Vols were 4-1 in games Calbert was in the starting lineup, including his debut against Chattanooga (45-0) and the Taxslayer Bowl victory over Indiana in January.

Calbert has played 23 games in his career on the Hill, which came after he earned all-state honors for Warren County in 2016.
