Sure, the Chattanooga Mocs are an FCS team. But they actually have some talent, including three All-Southern defensive players. But Bryce Nunnelly, their top receiver, will be the main guy Tennessee football needs to keep an eye on.
Even if Rusty Wright changes up some things, Nunnelly will clearly be his main focus this year. The guy had 78 catches for an incredibly 1,231 yards and seven touchdowns last year. Even more impressive is the fact that he didn’t back down in big games against Power Five schools.
After all, Nunnelly had five catches for 141 yards against the South Carolina Gamecocks and Will Muschamp’s defense last year, and he even threw for a touchdown in that game. So he won’t be scared of the Vols. The 6’2″ 190-pound Cleveland, Tenn. native will likely want to torch the opposing school from right up the road.
Nunnelly is a clear baller, and although UT has elite cornerbacks who are young in Alontae Taylor and Bryce Thompson, he is still the biggest threat to them the Mocs have to offer. If the Vols are ever going to be threatened by an FCS school, Nunnelly could be the reason that happens this year. He is pretty darn talented.
