K’Rojhn Calbert has suffered two ACL injuries and was going to miss all of last season before Tennessee football even began fall camp. They also limited him his final year in high school, which is why his skills set is completely up in the air.
However, he has pretty impressive size now as a redshirt freshman at 6’5″ 316 pounds. And Tennessee football needs as much depth at the offensive line position as possible. Add in the open competition to get into the rotation, and Calbert definitely has a chance to see the field early.
After being limited in the spring, Calbert worked with the second-team rotation in the Orange and White game. Jeremy Pruitt and Tyson Helton are clearly giving him looks, and even if he doesn’t make what I will consider to be a 10-man rotation, he’ll be one of the first guys up after that.
As a result, Calbert is one freshman who definitely has a chance to see significant action. Injuries on the line are inevitable, and Calbert is one of the most athletic freshmen in the unit. In fact, he may be the most athletic if he didn’t lose anything from his injuries.
That combined with his size could make him a genuine threat. Even if he is a bit raw playing the college game, he’s where everybody else is in terms of learning Helton’s system specifically. So he’ll definitely have his chances to get into the rotation, and don’t be surprised if he does play.
