Wolf and Callaway are the first non-seniors to represent UT at media days since 2015.

Phillips was rated a five-star recruit and the top prospect in the state of Tennessee by the 247Sports Composite coming out of Hillsboro High School in Nashville in 2015. He recorded a sack in six games as a freshman before missing the latter half of the season with a shoulder injury. Phillips played in 23 games the next two seasons, spending time at end and tackle on the defensive front. He was named the most improved defensive player of the spring after the 2018 Orange and White Game by Vols coaches.

Wolf, a tight end, won Tennessee's Harvey Robinson Award at the end of the spring, given annually to Tennessee's most improved player overall. He caught five passes for 63 yards and a touchdown in the spring game. Wolf, who's brother Ethan played tight end at Tennessee, came to the Vols as a walk-on in 2015 and earned a scholarship last August.

He led the team with five touchdown catches in 2017.
