Former Bergen Catholic star Jarrett Guarantano to start at QB for Tennessee

Tennessee will have a new starting quarterback when the Vols take on SC.

Vols coach Butch Jones said Wednesday that Guarantano would get the starting nod Saturday when Tennessee (3-2, 0-2 SEC) hosts SC (4-2, 2-2). "He's worked very, very hard". The former top recruit out of the Volunteers' 2016 class is 12-for-24 for 54 yards. In five games this year, the junior has completed 55.5 percent of his passes for 925 yards and six TDs, but has also thrown six interceptions and struggled with turnovers.

University of Tennessee's Marcus Tatum (68) puts up a block for quarterback Jarrett Guarantano (2) as he throws a pass during the University of Tennessee vs. University of Georgia football game at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tenn., Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017. Jones stated that Guarantano has "earned the right and the opportunity" to start at quarterback. "We need to score points in this conference". Quinten Dormady has been benched in favor of Jarrett Guarantano and Dormady is now considering transferring. Jarrett Guarantano will get the start Saturday over Quinten Dormady.

The Vols are getting set to host the South Carolina Gamecocks who are coming off a strong performance against the Arkansas Razorbacks.

Scott said Gurantano "is not hiding from that". "We know what happened". It was all over national TV.

"He can see that, 'If I'm going to be the face of a program, the face of the team, the quarterback, it can't look like that. What he's done is he's done a really good job just mentally of understanding how to focus, how to be a great teammate, learning how to take the steps to be the quarterback". Tennessee has won three of those contests while SC won last year's match-up.

"Quinten is a competitor", Jones said. "Obviously he was very, very disappointed, but that's what you would expect from a competitor". The Vols had a bye week to prepare and get ready, and Jones recently called the bye week one of the best he's had. You're always one snap away.
