Staying in the trenches, Dominic Bailey was a four-star commitment at defensive tackle for Tennessee football back in 2020. Obviously, he still doesn’t really have the size to play in the middle in the SEC just yet, but he does have potential, and there are ways he could find a spot in the rotation this year.
The graduate of St. Frances Academy in Baltimore who hails from Maryland’s Wicomico County did see action in one game last year, against the Florida Gators. His size could warrant him playing up on the line at end this year if things work out.
Don’t forget the Vols are dealing with the transfers of Greg Emerson, Darel Middleton and Savion Williams. They also have to deal with the release of KaTron Evans from his letter of intent and the transfer of Isaac Washington after he was suspended in the spring.
Sure, USC Trojans transfer Caleb Tremblay and Kansas Jayhawks transfer Da’Jon Terry have joined the class. Kurott Garland, Aubrey Solomon, Omari Thomas, Elijah Simmons and Matthew Butler, LaTrell Bumphus and Ja’Quain Blakely on the outside make for a ton of depth. Tim Banks will want to rotate a lot, though, especially if he uses four linemen, so Bailey could easily see some time.
