Jeremy Pruitt’s “first” recruiting class at Tennessee is more or less wrapped up, and the Vols have officially signed 20 players and have two blueshirt candidates for their 2018 class. Pruitt and his staff got to experience the first ever early signing period in college football this cycle, and they only had two months to try and salvage the class and bring in their own prospects as well.
There was a clear focus on the line of scrimmage for the Vols in Pruitt’s first class. Half of the Vols’ 20 signees project to play on either the offensive line or defensive line for Tennessee, and two more also project to play at linebacker. Tennessee didn’t add a ton in the way of skill position players on offense, but they did manage to add two receivers, two tight ends, and a running back.
