The Vols are set to host at least seven official visitors this weekend, which marks the final time that the coaching staff will be allowed to host recruits before National Signing Day on Wednesday. And while Tennessee coaches are likely to spend all weekend giving their best pitches to recruits on why Tennessee is the best choice for them, some fans went ahead and got the recruiting process started this afternoon.
Below is an image of ‘The Rock’ on Tennessee’s campus that features a personalized recruiting pitch to Vol commits Venzell Boulware, Kendall Bussey, Justin Martin and Preston Williams, as well as current Ole Miss commit Drew Richmond.

“Welcome Home,” “Team 119” and “DreamTeam15” are all written, as well as the phrase “Get Richmond or die tryin” as an homage to rapper 50 Cent’s debut album, and play on words as the Vols are set to pull out all the stops this weekend as they try to flip Drew Richmond from Ole Miss.
Nice work, boys.
And here’s an updated look at The Rock from later on Saturday:
