Vols Football Rumors: Jauan Jennings To Be Reinstated To Team

The Vols football program looks ready to welcome back one of its top playmakers from two seasons ago.

After a rough 2017 campaign for wide receiver Jauan Jennings, who was booted from the team after an expletive-filled rant directed at the Tennessee coaching staff, reports are surfacing that he is set to be welcomed back to the team by new head coach Jeremy Pruitt.

According to Ultimate SEC Show radio host Trey Wallace, Jennings will be reinstated after meeting certain stipulations set forth by the new staff in place.

Both @JohnDBrice1 & I have worked on the Jauan Jennings situation for a while now & can confirm Jennings will be reinstated to the team but must abide by certain stipulations. #Tennessee

In 2016, his last full season, Jennings caught 40 passes for 580 yards and seven touchdowns.

During the 2017 season, Jennings was limited early due to a dislocated wrist and then ultimately saw his year come to an end after making the ill-advised decision to go on Instagram Live to bash his coaches.

If Jennings has learned from his mistakes and is set to come back as a more mature student-athlete, however, it’s a great addition for the Vols offense as they look for a fresh start in 2018.
