Tennessee Vols head coach Jeremy Pruitt is finally making the move that a lot of folks have been begging for this season.

True freshman Harrison Bailey will be the Vols’ starting quarterback against Florida on Saturday, according to a report from AL.com’s Matt Zenitz.

This isn’t too much of a surprise. Tennessee wide receiver Josh Palmer alluded to Bailey starting earlier this week during a media session with reporters.

Brian Maurer was the last true freshman quarterback to start for the Vols. Maurer started last season’s loss to Georgia.

Will McBride also started as a true freshman quarterback in 2017 (against Missouri).
