One player that we have spoken about a couple of times in the war room that the Vols are yet to offer is Beech tight end Jackson Long but BIG TIME offers are coming. He impressed over the weekend with seven touchdowns in Orlando against top end talent of impressive Florida 7v7 teams featuring P5 talent. Part of the slowed process for Long is his offense at Beech which is heavy running with the wing T. Throw in no camps for the last year and he is hidden but slowly being found.
Is Long considered one of those (probable) shoe in local Vols if we offer or more of a slow recruitment given the fact that FSU is the first P5 offer?
Callahan: I wouldn’t say Jackson Long is a shoo-in for Tennessee if he gets an offer from the Vols. They would have a shot at him, but he’s pretty open-minded, in my opinion. If he blows up with offers, I think they will probably have to battle for him.
