Which Tennessee football quarterback has the most upside?
And the competition is getting more crowded after Michigan transfer Joe Milton announced his commitment to Tennessee on Monday.
Milton, who started five games with the Wolverines in 2020, will be eligible to play in 2021, and he'll have three years of eligibility remaining.
Each of Tennessee's three available scholarship quarterbacks – Hendon Hooker, Brian Maurer and Harrison Bailey – delivered solid performances in the spring game, but Bailey took top honors by completing 12 of 15 passes for 260 yards with two touchdowns.
On this edition of "The Volunteer State," Blake Toppmeyer and John Adams of the News Sentinel handicap the quarterback competition entering the summer and debate which quarterback has the highest ceiling.
Adams says Bailey has the highest upside, while Toppmeyer selects Milton, but he adds that Milton also might have a lower floor than Bailey.
Milton is renowned for his arm strength, but it will take more than that to win the starting job. Toppmeyer wonders whether Heupel can develop Milton like he did Missouri quarterback Drew Lock, who threw a great deep ball and improved under Heupel's tutelage.
Toppmeyer and Adams predict that one of Tennessee's five scholarship quarterbacks will enter the transfer portal this summer.
