FIVE-STAR DL WALTER NOLEN

Nolen, who recently transferred to St. Benedict at Auburndale High School in Cordova, Tenn., said Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt was among the first coaches to contact him early Tuesday morning.

The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Nolen, who's ranked the nation's No. 1 overall prospect in the industry-generated 247Sports Composite for the 2022 class, said he received text messages from coaches at Oregon and Ohio State "right at 12," and he "heard from Coach Pruitt five minutes later." Nolen said Vols defensive coordinator Derrick Ansley also reached out to him later.

"They were telling me they need me," Nolen said of Tennessee.

Nolen is originally from the Memphis area and spent his sophomore season at Olive Branch (Miss.) High School, just outside Memphis, before transferring to talent-filled IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., in January. After spending a few months at the powerhouse program, he decided to return to the Memphis area for his final two years of high school.

He now will be playing for former Tennessee defensive lineman Marlon Walls, who's in his second year as St. Benedict's head coach.

Until he committed to UT, then he would drop 200 spots and become a 3 star.

If that meant anything to him then all he has to do is be a silent commitment and sign on the second signing day. He doesnโ€™t have to make his verbal commitment public. I never understood why UT public commits get the shaft in rankings like it seems they do. The only problem with keeping it silent is the momentum in recruiting you get from having the #1 guy going public with his commitment to you.

I guarantee if Nolen commits to the good guys his stock will drop. It is not a just a hunch. It is a virtual guarantee. Uncommitted prospects bring more eyeballs than committed prospects. He'll drop in the rankings in favor of some uncommitted prospect.
Ehh. Mike Farrell has acknowledged multiple times that the Vols have the perceived edge in this recruitment. Still put him #1. Don't think there would suddenly be a big drop.

We literally had the most post-commitment risers from the 2019 class, so nawww, in general.

That said, he's currently #1, so that's sort of a silly bet as he can only move down at this point.
