Rocky Top recruiting weekend could help vault Vols into top 10, set stage for elite 2019 class

Michael Wayne Bratton | 5 hours ago

Jeremy Pruitt is now on the job full-time in Knoxville and that could be trouble for schools hoping to compete with Tennessee for recruits in the near future.

As Tennessee's new head coach said this week in his press conference, "If you ain't recruiting 365 days a year, someone else is."Based on his early returns in Knoxville, that's more than just lip service for Pruitt and the coaching staff he's assembled.

The article goes on to mention that Quay Walker, the nation's no.3 OLB prospect, who was originally scheduled to visit UF but decided to visit Rocky Top with JJ Peterson instead. Signing the both of them in the same class would be a coup.

The last report I saw indicated that following the ESP, 33 of the nation's top 100 prospects remained on the board.

Another Trey Smith or two, Jennings back, Byrd works out at DB, a pair of starting freshman LBs, and those JUCOs and who knows how many wins we could pull off this fall.

This is what I've been saying. With the talent already on the team (just needs development and good coaching), the great recruits coming our way this year, and the new coaching staff... I do not believe VolNation will be as embarrassed as we thought we would be in 2018. If a couple of toss-up games go our way we could have a 7, 8, or 9 win season... plus a bowl game. Just remember we shouldn't count out that dog that ain't been hunted yit (Smokey V.2018.0)! ! !

Indeed.

The future does look bright.

According to Jimmy"the tool" Hyams we won't get a top 10 class. He was on the radio in Nashville this morning and they asked him. I know "consider the source".

A whole lot of people don't think UT will get a top 10 class this year, after Jones, Currie, decommits, short time for Pruitt to recruit, early signing, etc.

Really? We are at 16th. A couple of big names, and we are in the top 10. Eleven spots and we are at no.5. Donít tell me it canít be done, because I believe it can and will be done.

are they already here or coming in tomorrow? If they aren't it could be a mess with a bunch of no shows.

Its going to extremely difficult for us to get in the top 10. We would need some of our current commits to get significant bumps. Also, we would need to land a few 5*s. Finally, we would need a few current top 10 teams to slip up. All that is unlikely. But this class will still be a big success.

Already 16th. We get Quay, Griffin, and Copeland and we are a lock for top 10.

Donít think itís quite that simple. We can finish really strong with those guys and a few others and not necessarily get into the top 10...just not many teams in the top 10 we can displace at this point imo based on their average player ratings and how many signees they currently have.

Ftr, I think JP and staff have done a phenomenal job thus far with this class. Itís great to be excited about recruiting again.

We can only sign 23. It just may not be mathematically possible to climb to 10th
