Finding an elite running back in the 2017 class is a top priority for Tennessee. One option is Clinton, Miss., back Cam Akers, who 247Sports ranks as the second best overall back in the nation.
The only problem for the Vols? He’s currently committed to Alabama. But perhaps UT can take this video as a sign that he’s certainly still interested in Tennessee.

Not only is the 6-foot, 215-pound back power cleaning an insane amount of weight, but he’s doing it in Tennessee gear. It’s early and it’s speculative, but Tennessee coaches have to love that he’s repping the Power T still at this point.
Alabama fans and coaches? Probably not so much.
Cam Akers took to Twitter on Thursday afternoon to announce his decommitment from Alabama and is now back on the market.

The highly-rated running back was already one of Tennessee’s top targets in the 2017 class, and now he’s back to being an uncommitted prospect. It’s not hard to imagine the Vols are going to make a big push for him.
