As the college football season nears the finish line, the focus for college coaches and college football fans begins to shift towards recruiting as staffs across the country begin putting their final touches on wrapping up their respective classes. To this point in the year, Tennessee has put together an extremely strong class and looks poised for another big finish that should see them, once again, ranked among the nation’s elite when the dust settles on National Signing Day on February 4th.
The Vols currently sit at 25 commitments for the 2015 class – after Cecil Cherry recently announced that he was no longer committed to Tennessee – but the Vols could take as many as 33 according to head coach Butch Jones, depending on how the numbers work themselves out. As is always the case in recruiting, nothing is ever final until a player has either enrolled early or signed the dotted line in February. However, we wanted to put together a list of names for Vol fans to keep in the back of their minds over the coming weeks and months as players who at least have the possibility of joining Tennessee’s class when all is said and done.
By no means are the following names the only players Tennessee stands a chance at adding to this year’s class – once again, recruiting is far from an exact science – these are simply players that have had very real interest in the Vols in recent weeks. So, here are 13 players that we feel Tennessee has a legitimate chance to add to their class by the time February 4th rolls around.
