Tennessee Depth by Class 2023


This post is outdated. Please see the newest version posted here.


Depth by class is a concept that provides at-a-glance information about the health of each position group in terms of age and experience and where upcoming needs may be. For example, if all of your offensive tackles are juniors and seniors, you know that is a position of need in recruiting--in fact it may be too late to shore up that position for future success (I'm looking at you, Derrick Dooley). 

This used to be pretty straight-forward. However, the transfer portal has made the end of a player's eligibility unpredictable as a player can at any time decide to dip out of the program altogether. The extra year of eligibility given to players in 2020 has also made tracking a player's remaining years more difficult. And on top of that, even the school's official roster does not make it clear when a player has used a redshirt season. 

With those factors in mind, please excuse any errors in the chart below. Send suggestions/corrections to cornfromajar@gmail.com.
