Jeremy Pruitt and his Tennessee staff are doing their best to close out the Vols’ 2018 recruiting class with a bang. The Vols are in on several highly-rated prospects who weren’t even options under Tennessee’s previous coaching staff.
And now the highest-rated remaining target in Tennessee’s 2018 class is set to visit the Vols.
According to Ryan Callahan of 247Sports, Isaac Taylor-Stuart, a five-star cornerback in the 2018 class, is planning on visiting Tennessee. Not only is he planning on visiting them, however, but he plans on giving the Vols his last official visit.
In the interview with Callahan (it’s a VIP article), Taylor-Stuart confirms that he’ll be visiting Tennessee on February 2nd, just five days before National Signing Day. That visit will come after visits to USC on January 12th and Georgia on January 26th.
Taylor-Stuart wasn’t even on Tennessee’s radar until Jeremy Pruitt arrived in Knoxville. The five-star corner, who’s rated as the No. 2 corner in the 2018 class and the 26th overall prospect in the class according to the 247Sports Composite rankings, didn’t get an offer from the Vols till December 9th. He holds offers from four dozen schools and is one of the most highly sought-after recruits remaining in the 2018 cycle.
But Taylor-Stuart isn’t the only big Vol target scheduled to visit Tennessee over the next month.
According to the 247Sports database, three other prospects whom the Vols have been targeting hard to close out this cycle are set to visit Tennessee before National Signing Day. Four-star defensive tackle Coynis Miller and three-star safety Nikko Hall are planning to visit on January 26th while three-star defensive end Malik Langham is scheduled to visit on the same day as Taylor-Stuart.
With the way Pruitt and his staff were able to close during the early signing period after not even two weeks on the job, Vol fans are excited to see what they can do over the next month-plus to close out the 2018 recruiting cycle.
And with names like these set to visit Tennessee and others saying the Vols are at the top of their list, the 2018 class could end up being much better than anticipated a few months ago.
