How Vols Rank In Every Major Recruiting Service

    by -

    It’s still fairly early into the 2018 recruiting cycle, but Tennessee has picked up quite a bit of early momentum in this class so far. The Vols currently have 11 commitments in the 2018 class, and seven of those players are from the state of Tennessee.

    But how does Tennessee fare in each national recruiting service so far?

    The Vols’ ranking in the 2018 class has quite a range in the early going. From sneaking in to the top 10 on a couple sites to barely being in the top 15 in another, the Vols’ 2018 class is garnering some mixed reviews thus far.

    Here is how Tennessee’s 2018 class ranks according to the four major recruiting services so far.

    247Sports Composite 

    Ranking: 8th (2nd SEC)
    Average Star Rating: 3.55

    Rivals

    Ranking: 9th (2nd SEC)
    Average Star Rating: 3.55

    ESPN

    Ranking: 10th (2nd SEC)
    Average Star Rating: 3.36

    Scout

    Ranking: 14th (2nd SEC)
    Average Star Rating: 3.36

    Total Average Rankings

    Average Overall Rankings: 10.25 (2nd SEC)
    Average Overall Star Rating: 3.46

    Right now, the Vols are averaging about the 10th-best recruiting class in the country across the four major recruiting services. 247Sports and Rivals both have Tennessee with one five-star (Cade Mays) while Scout and ESPN do not. ESPN, however, has the Vols with seven four-star prospects in the class. That’s easily the most four-stars in any single recruiting service for Tennessee.

    Interestingly, the Vols are second in the SEC in every major service. Only LSU has a better class in the 2018 cycle thus far according to the four main recruiting sites.

    It’s still very early in the 2018 recruiting cycle, but so far the Vols are right on track to finish with another top 10 class in the Butch Jones era. Things can certainly change in the coming months, but the outlook is positive right now.
