Tennessee is expected to host dozens of visitors on Saturday for its Checker Neyland game against Oklahoma. Amazingly, after an incredible run in quarterback recruiting recently, the Vols are looking to extend that even further as well.
The Vols landed three four-star QBs in 2015 (though one, Jauan Jennings, moved to WR this fall), have the No. 1 dual-threat QB in the nation per the 247Sports Composite in 2016 in Jarrett Guarantano committed, and the No. 1 pro-style QB in the 2017 class, Hunter Johnson also pledged.
Now 2018 signal caller Trevor Lawrence, the No. 1 overall player in 2018, per 247Sports, is visiting Knoxville this weekend.

The 6-foot-5, 191-pound prospect out of Cartersville, Ga., currently favors the Vols, according to the 247Sports Crystal Ball. He has over a dozen early offers, including ones from Georgia, Clemson, LSU and Ole Miss.
We’ll have more recruiting updates throughout the course of the weekend.
