For the past month, we’ve profiled 16 of Tennessee’s top recruiting targets for the 2016 class. Our goal was to simplify recruiting to an extent. The Vols’ list of offers is in the hundreds, but many of those names will never visit campus nor seriously consider Tennessee.
That’s not the case for those listed in our 16 for 2016 series. These are players who the Vols have serious interest in and vice versa. Many of these players have been on campus at least once, and/or have plans to make it to Knoxville soon. A lot have named Tennessee in at least their top five and several have UT on top.
That’s not to say that the Vols will land every single one of them, or that there aren’t other prospect that are high on UT or may gain significant interest in Tennessee over the spring or summer. But consider this a good starter pack for the 2016 class and look for our full database of interested prospects for the 2016 class to come out after spring practice.
All 16 for 2016 members are either uncommitted or have indicated that, despite a commitment, that they are still looking around. We didn’t include UT’s current 2016 commitments since they are already in the fold to an extent, but you can see profiles for all of them here.
