Tennessee Football: 10 Players with Most to Gain in Spring Practices
John David Mercer-USA TODAY Spor
If Justin Worley is going to win the starting quarterback job, this spring is huge for him.

Spring practice kicks off for the Tennessee Volunteers on March 7, and there hasn't been a more highly anticipated session in more than a decade.

It would be difficult to find any program in the country that has more excitement surrounding it than Tennessee does, even in the wake of four consecutive losing seasons.

If all 32 UT signees make it to Knoxville, 54 of the 85 scholarship players on the 2014 roster will have been recruited by Butch Jones before the first snap of his second season. That's a ridiculous roster flip, but given the lean years at UT, the changes are tinted with positivity.

There will be a quarterback battle, excitement surrounding highly touted mid-termers and a sense of urgency among returning players needing to make a serious statement. Competition breeds better football.
