KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — The roster above will only be relevant for a few weeks.

(Here’s a link if you’re viewing this on a mobile platform).

At least a dozen early enrollees will arrive on campus in January. About 20 more new Tennessee players will join this summer.

But it’s still interesting to see the Vols’ roster at this snapshot in time, because it drives home the loss of several experienced seniors.

Of the 58 scholarship players currently on roster, only 23 have started a game. Dozens of players have little meaningful experience. As the roster crunch starts to hit, some players may be prodded to move on with their careers.

As of this moment, the senior class has 16 15 players. That number will likely dwindle.

There are three players left from the Class of 2010, 17 from 2011, 13 from 2012 and 22 from Butch Jones‘ inaugural class in 2012.

The geographic midpoint of the roster — near Cartersville, Ga. — hasn’t changed much from a year ago.
