“I also love the state of Tennessee. I definitely have strong feelings for the new staff. … I like it so far. Definitely can’t wait to meet them in person. Good group of guys.”
Shor said he learned of his offer from Tennessee’s new staff Tuesday during a conversation with Elarbee, who spent the past five years working with Heupel at Missouri and UCF. Shor said Elarbee “really liked how aggressive I am” and “how fast I am off the ball.”
Since then, the Vols have stayed in frequent contact with Shor.
“They’ve texted me every day since the offer,” he said Monday. “Coach Heupel has reached out a couple of times.”
