Here’s All the Recruits Visiting Tennessee this Weekend

    by -

    Jeremy Pruitt has been on the job for barely a week as the Vols’ head football coach, and he and his staff have been on the recruiting trail pretty much as soon as Pruitt was hired. And they’ve been hitting the trail hard.

    Pruitt and his staff were able to get four-star, in-state athlete Alontae Taylor to recommit to the Vols a month after decommitting earlier this week. And while Tennessee has suffered several decommitments since Pruitt and his staff took over, they’ve also been offering a ton of scholarships to many different players across the country.

    And a lot of those players are set to visit the Vols this weekend.

    Tennessee has a very busy recruiting weekend ahead of them. Don’t be surprised if they’re able to pick up a commitment or two as the weekend progresses. But even if they don’t, this weekend is very important to the Vols’ recruiting efforts moving forward.

    We have a list of all the recruits who are expected to be visiting Tennessee this weekend. And we’ll update as more names are added.
