Former Volunteer basketballer Stanley Asumnu, who decided to give football a try now that his basketball eligibility is exhausted, turned in the highlight of yesterday’s spring practice scrimmage, pulling in a 50-yard pass. Dude’s got some hops. And hands, it appears. See the play at the 1:30 mark of the scrimmage video from UTSports.com. The video includes footage of Asumnu’s basketball teammates cheering him on after the play.
Senior cornerback Antwan Stewart also had a good day, intercepting two passes, one from each of Erik Ainge and Jon Crompton. Coach Fulmer said that sophomore Demetrice Morley almost had three picks by baiting the quarterback and then cutting under the receiver. The secondary overall sounds promising.
