New Vols choose their jersey numbers

Tennessee revealed its football summer enrollees jersey numbers on Monday.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — There are 19 newcomers for Tennessee football this summer. On Monday afternoon, the team's official twitter page revealed their jersey numbers. 

Outside linebacker Tyler Baron, from Knox Catholic, will wear number nine. So will wide receiver Jimmy Calloway.
