Tennessee senior center James Stone was one of 44 players selected to the Rimington Trophy spring watch list on Tuesday.
The trophy honors the nation's top collegiate center. Nine SEC centers are on the watch list.
A native of Nashville, Stone started all 12 games for the Vols in 2012.
Stone was plagued by snapping miscues a year earlier but opted to start snapping with his right hand on under-center snaps while using his natural left hand on longer shot-gun snaps. Stone is one of four senior starters on an offensive line that is considered one of Tennessee's strengths in 2013.
