Chandler has visited UT a handful of times in the past couple years as he’s become one of the top targets in the 2017 cycle for the Vols. Ole Miss and UT seems to be the early favorites, though his stock continues to soar as he’s become viewed as one of the top prospects as his position in this class.

 How He Fits

It’s tough to envision a better replacement for Alvin Kamara than Chandler, who is absolutely dynamic with the ball in his hands. But like Kamara, he can also run between the tackles and do a lot of different things for an offense.

Pairing Chandler with a bigger back in the 2017 class would be a dream scenario for the Vols that would make them feel much better about the impending departures of Jalen Hurd and Kamara in the next year or two.
