They definitely want a tight end in this class, and they're obviously pursuing five-star Darnell Washington. Gilbert, as you mentioned, is being recruited by Tennessee as a receiver. But Dee Beckwith, the athlete from Alabama, is a guy who could play a few different positions on offense, with TE maybe being one of them. We'll see if the Vols turn up the heat on any other tight ends, but they mostly have focused on a few top targets there so far this year.
The Vols still are one of the top teams he’s considering.
The four-star Class of 2020 athlete from Florence (Ala.) High School said Tennessee is “still pretty high” on the list of schools he’s considering following his latest visit with the Vols on June 1, and they “definitely” have been one of the teams recruiting him hardest.
We spoke with Dee, his father and brother the other day. Ole Miss offered them a package deal even though his brother is probably not a D1 prospect. He is wanting to visit Texas A&M and still holding out for an offer from Alabama. He really does love basketball, alot more than football, and probably still holding out hope he gets a good offer there. He also realizes how many more opportunities he'll have playing football. He loves UT and CJP and I believe we are still the leader in the clubhouse. If A&M offers AND they let him play basketball I believe he would take it. If Bama offers I believe he would take it. If neither offers and he doesn't get a power5 basketball offer I believe he'll end up in Knoxville. He's a big, fast good looking athlete and a good kid, I hope we get him!
