KNOXVILLE – A team can’t win any games in spring practice.

A player, however, can make a name for himself. That’s exactly what receiver Von Pearson is beginning to do for Tennessee after one week of spring drills.

The highly-touted junior college prospect is living up to the hype. After showing a knack for making highlight-reel plays so far in practice, there was a noticeable buzz at practice on Thursday afternoon when coach Butch Jones called him out in front of the team to go 1-on-1 against cornerback Malik Foreman near the end zone.
