Nwaneri, Franklin, Ross, and Fountain will be insane. Just hope we can start matching our DL recruiting on the OL. Outside of Umarov we haven’t really been able to land a stud OT yet. I think Heard has a lot of potential there and I like Ginther and Perry as projects. We really need to land 2 of Baker, Anderson, Calhoun, Easley, Callaway, Westphal, and O’Connell though

Heard was recruited for the DL

Perry comes from an unknown program, but he's not a project.
He's just young. Just like any 5 star OT in the same class

Where has that been said?
Coach Garner has been the one to personally recruit Heard. AP was giving his opinion because of Heard's height and athleticism, but this recruitment has been all CRG from the beginning. He has also spent all his time with CRG during his visits except for time spent with Coach Heupel.

What’s wrong with hoping we can start landing more stud OT…
Because he uses whatever he can to disparage the staffs recruiting abilities. Let’s just say for example we don’t land all kinds of stud OL. Then he will say stuff like oh it was a failure or the class isn’t good. Or this isn’t the types of guys that’s gonna win you a national championship. That type of thing.

How impressive that CRG wanted him and some others think he could develop into a stud OT

A lot of you have asked about Jordan Ross. The Vols are deep in this one, but the competition is growing. Florida and Oregon have both made strong impressions of late. Ross will be back to Knoxville the weekend of June 23rd for an official visit before most likely making a decision in mid-July. Georgia and Texas are both involved here as well, but the Vols may sit in the best position heading into June OVs. We don’t expect him to visit anywhere else in May.

I’ve seen some of believetheheup posts. This wasn’t one of those lol. I hope we can land some stud OT too

Maybe so but CRG also primarily recruits GA regardless of position.

Baker would be nice. And another Darnell Wright.

Everyone knows now that we can coach up elite talent. Not just scheme.
I personally think Trevor Duncan has the potential to be a Darnell Wright type of OL. Not sure what kind of wingspan he has, but for his size he has great twitch. Which is what made Darnell so special. I know all of the armchair QBs and twitter gurus on here think “Reeeeeeeeeeeee RoDnEy GaRnEr ReCrUiTeD hIm As A dL sO tHaT’s WhErE hE iS gOiNg To PlAy” but I think with the guys we’ve landed at DL and are in contention for in 2024 that he will be able to make a bigger impact for us at RT if he’s able to get to about 310-320 by his second year on campus

Rodney Garner stopped by the schools of some big-name prospects in Alabama to start the week, including Jordan Ross, Jared Smith, and Na'eem Offord. Ross continues to say a lot of good things about the Vols, but as he noted in our update on Thursday, his recruitment still has a long way to go. Oregon and USC are other schools now slotted to likely get an OV at some point in the fall.

We’re becoming snobs.

Think about it …. This is a legit 5 star stud edge guy we’re heavily rumored to be leading for, and this thread is only 6 pages. Meanwhile, just a few years ago, threads for guys like Jay Hardy etc went 60+ pages.

😂
We’re not snobs… We knew this is what our football program was capable of. We also knew we just needed the right guy leading it to get us there. We have that now and we have the best DL coach in the country and an elite recruiter… We aren’t handwringing anymore.

I think him being from Alabama has everyone a bit gun shy on the excitement.
