3 things to watch for:

Tennessee visitors this weekend
WR Malik Benson (OV)
LB Jalen Smith (OV)
DB Jordan Castell (OV)
WR Aiden Mizell (OV)
Edge Samuel M'Pemba
LB Grant Godfrey
OL Raymond Pulido (think he was actually here yesterday)

Goes without sating that OVs are always big, and Benson/Mizell are two of the top WR targets on the board and BIG BOY battles.

Oh, and Tennessee is hosting the Super Regional with a ticket so tough we'll also have a watch party. Games start Friday, so should be a bigtime (and unique, since it's the summer) opportunity to showcase the fanbase and athletic department

OT7 - Overtime 7-on-7 League tournament in Vegas
Runs from Thursday to Sunday.
Vol commits in attendance
QB Nico Iamaleava
TE Ethan Davis

Vols targets (HUGE opportunity for Nico to peer recruit)
WR Carnell Tate
WR Zach Myers (interesting that he's competing at WR when everyone has thought he was more of a DB. With a big showing maybe UT will start recruiting him on that side of the ball, which given our respective boards would probably open up more of a possibility of taking him)
WR Nathan Leacock
WR Ryan Wingo (2024, was just on campus)
CB Jakeem Jackson
Edge Samuel M'Pemba (again, supposed to be in Knoxville during this time, so we'll see)
Edge Tausili Akana (playing with Nico on Team Toa)
Obviously lots of bigtime 2024 WRs and TEs who Nico can peer recruit as well

Targets OV'ing Elsewhere
OL Umarov - UGA
Mauigoa - Bama
DL Osborne/Faulk - AU
LB Allen - AU
DL Gadson - Minnesota
Edge Shirley - Duke
S Nelson - PSU

Great weekend for recruiting as the campus will be alive for super regionals. The block party will be electric with the intensity matching other schools’ football environment. Each sport compliments one another in recruiting.
no doubt...electric atmosphere vs other campuses being dead should be huge advantage for us

Cannot take recruits to an NCAA event.
Not even close to correct. You see football recruits at basketball all the time. What you can't do is announce them and parade them out onto the court/field. Fans know they are there and chant their names lots of times for big time recruits.

I don’t know the recruiting rules, but there is a difference in a home game that’s part of the regular season and an NCAA post season tournament game. If a March Madness game was held on a campus, could the hosting school take recruits?

Looks like recruits can attend NCAA tournament games but only on their own dime (and if they can find a ticket).

13.6.7.2.2 NCAA Championships or Other Postseason Contests. The provision of complimentary or reduced-cost admissions to prospective student-athletes for an NCAA championship (all rounds) or other postseason contests (e.g., bowl game, NAIA or NIT championship) constitutes excessive entertainment and is prohibited. The prospective student-athlete may purchase these tickets only in the same manner as any other member of the general public. [R] (Revised: 1/10/92, 4/28/08 effective 8/1/08)

So many ways around that.

Deadly accurate according to Bylaw 13.6.7.2.2 NCAA or Other Postseason Contests.
