I like the creativity, but I don’t see Taylor or Thornton in this class.
You probably didn’t see Malachi Wideman or Morven Joseph in this class this time last year either. Got a long way to signing day. Chances are there’s 5-6 guys were not even going after yet they’ll end up signing here

I have a feeling there will be a lot of movement in everyone's classes. Nobody can go visit, nobody can go to camps. Then, after this COVID crap settles down, people will begin to visit and such. I think we pull a top 10 class regardless though.

I feel like it's a positive for us getting these guys to shut it down right now while they can't visit other schools. So when that becomes available again, they only visit us and if they visit elsewhere it will tell a lot

What really bugs me is rival fans saying well they have 12 3 stars committed and that's the bulk of their class. I know a few will be bumped to four stars while I'm sure there will be some recruited over. Plus were fixing to get 4 more highly ranked 4 stars next week. What's y'all thoughts on opposing programs negative talking about us.

To add on: I think TN is in way better shape than most by having gathered so many commits during this lull period. I think commits to all schools will be unusually well rooted, and it is the perfect year to front-load the class.

The prospects have now had a very unique few weeks to build identify capital at their school - and TNs have done so very publicly - when they would otherwise be comparing offers and waiting to pounce on various visit opportunities....while getting pestered a lot more by those various schools.

All in all, a really great spring for Vol 'crooting.

My realistic dream finish. Mine almost never end up being close, especially this early, but here it goes...

QB - Salter
OL - Smith, Mims, Pennington
WR - Mosley, Merrill, Marley
RB - Brown, Evans
TE - Montavao, Bell
TE/WR - Nixon
RB/Slot - Wright

DL - KaTron Evans, Ingrams-Dawkins, Washington, Jackson
OLB/edge - Brooks and one of either Smael Mondon, Jeremiah Williams, Keanu Koht, Naquon Brown, or Junior Colson
ILB - Lewis, Aaron Willis
DB - Wilcoxson, Rucker, Terrion Arnold, and Howard or White

Like I said, I used the 247 class calculator and this class would’ve finished #7 last year. It would probably be 4th in the SEC this year. That’s great. Top 5 in the SEC, you’ve got a shot at the crown imo if you develop your players well enough.

I think Merrill and Washington will keep their offers, but otherwise agree.

Not a good idea to read "dumas" too fast.

Way too early, but we are totally signing more than 25:
QB- Salter
RB- Evans, Brown, Wright
WR- Nixon, Merrill, Smith
TE- Wolfe, Campbell
OL- Pounds, Smith, Mims, Pennington
DL- Washinton, Taylor, Evans, Page
Edge- Price, Brooks
LB- Lewis, Willis, Mondon
CB- Wilcoxson, Howard
Star- Rucker
S- Arnold
ATH- Marley (WR/S), Bell (DL/TE)

That's 28, and essentially a dream finish. Would love to add another CB and S, but I'm not sure where we would take away from. Think Howard sticks, but honestly we need another lockdown CB (Burton, McGhee).

Yup looks about right to me and I agree with Howard sticking, unless we get another elite corner.

These are always pointless, but I have to think that the COVID has really helped us build these relationships, and hopefully many of these will stick together.

1. Terrence Lewis - LB
2. Dylan Brooks - DL/LB
3. Cody Brown - RB
4. Aaron Willis - LB
5. Kaeman Marley - Everywhere
6. Julian Nixon - WR
7. Jordan Mosley - WR
8. Kaidon Salter - QB
9. Kamar Wilcoxson - DB
10. Tiyon Evans - RB
11. Colby Smith - OL
12. Walker Merrill - WR
13. Miles Campbell - TE
14. De'Shawn Rucker - DB
15. Jaylen Wright - RB
16. Elijah Howard - DB
17. Payton Page - DL
18. KaTron Evans - DL
19. Smael Mondon - LB
20. Amarius Mims - OL
21. Trinity Bell - TE/DL
22. Terrion Arnold - DB
23. Dietrich Pennington - OL
24. Dylan Fairchild - OL
25. Tyrion Ingrams-Dawkins - DL

This likely won't happen, but I can dream. And right now, it doesn't feel like there's anyone Tennessee can't get.

This guy gets it. I don’t see Fairchild happening but we can swap some into that spot and maybe take a commitment from another receiver

I’m with you here. Had almost forgotten about Carver. Do you think we eventually whiff on Mims?

I think there’s a chance we could get him but for now I’m just putting the safer bet in pounds

Also replacing Breedlove with Warren. Think they’ll want to take a JUCO corner because chances are Bryce has a great season and declares early

If Bryce repeats his production when it was at its best last season, he definitely declares early I believe as well. Pounds is still a good player but Mims is an all American talent. No doubt. Hope we can give it our best try. Maybe my next biggest want in this class
