KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — True freshman quarterback Joshua Dobbs made his first appearance in front of reporters after Tuesday night’s practice.

The brief, unannounced visit with media produced nothing earth-shattering, but offered at least a brief glimpse of the 18-year-old who rapidly became one of the most prominent players on the team.

He was, of course, asked about his aerospace engineering major.

Here’s more video from Dobbs’ interview.

Tennessee coach Butch Jones typically doesn’t allow freshmen to talk to reporters. But he said he thought Dobbs was ready.
