10. LaBryan Ray
Among those expected to be in Knoxville this weekend is 4-star defensive end LaBryan Ray from Madison, AL. Like a few others on this list, Ray is a long shot to be a Vol in 2017. But as a 6’4″ 270-pound beast of a defensive lineman, Coach Butch Jones and Defensive Line Coach Steve Stripling are still thrilled to get him to Knoxville.
As of right now Alabama seems a heavy favorite to land Ray, however every coach knows how much of an impact it can have just getting a player on campus. So while he’s not shown heavy interest in the Vols thus far, he is interested enough to come to Orange Carpet Day. And that might be enough for Butch and company to work some recruiting magic.
