First-year Tennessee linebackers coach William Inge is pleased with working with him this spring.

He is extremely excited about who he will visit for preseason camp.

The volunteers have been working at full strength in recent weeks without sophomore Arion Carter, junior Elijah Herring and graduate transfer Keenan Pili. Tennessee held its 11th spring training on Tuesday morning, with the Orange & White Game coming up at Neyland Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Carter played eight games last year before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury in a 33-27 win at Kentucky in late October. The 6-foot-1, 230-pounder from Smyrna, a suburb of Nashville, took significant snaps each week and had 17 tackles and one tackle for loss.

“When you listen to Arion on the sidelines, you realize that he understands football and knows some of the schematic things that we want,” Inge said in a press conference on Tuesday.
