Tennessee’s recruiting efforts in the 2020 class are about to really pick up here in the last few weeks of spring and entering the summer. The Vols’ coaching staff will host prospects, attend camps, and get to evaluate recruits and send out new offers. Tennessee has many targets scattered across the country, but some of their top priorities are within their own state borders.
Right now, the Vols only have one player committed to them from the state of Tennessee, and that’s from long snapper Will Albright. That will change as the months go on, though.
Jeremy Pruitt and his staff are high on several in-state players in the 2020 cycle, and the Vols would love to sign a handful of in-state prospects in this class. But who are Tennessee’s top targets in their own state in this cycle?
Let’s take a look at the Vols’ top in-state targets in the 2020 class. It’s worth noting that this isn’t straight from the coaches’ boards at UT; in fact, their boards probably look very different than what the media thinks. But this list is based on visits, relationships with coaches and other recruits, and positions of need within the state.
With that in mind, here’s a list of the Vols’ biggest priorities in the state of Tennessee in the 2020 class.
First, here’s a look at some of the in-state players that didn’t make this list but are still worth mentioning as prospects the Vols are recruiting and keeping tabs on: Oakland cornerback De’Arre McDonald, Smyrna defensive lineman Dallas Walker, White Station offensive lineman Ray Curry Jr., and East Nashville Magnet School cornerback Yukari Blanchard.
