Tennessee defensive lineman Omari Phillips not practicing

omari-phillips.jpegKNOXVILLE, Tennessee -- Omari Phillips, a  late addition to Tennessee's 2012 recruiting class, is not currently practicing with the team.

Tennessee said the defensive lineman is focusing on academics.

Phillips originally signed with Florida but was not admitted to the school. He signed with the Vols in July. The 6-foot-6, 325-pound defensive tackle from Venice, Fla., was ranked a four-star prospect by every major recruiting service.

He has played in only one game this season.
