Where Vols’ 2020 Class Sits Before Early Signing Period

    by -

    The early signing period for the 2020 recruiting cycle begins first thing Wednesday morning, December 18th. It’s expected to be a very busy day for Tennessee, as several of UT’s top targets are prepared to announce their commitments and intentions to sign. Most of the Vols’ 2020 commits are also set to sign their National Letters of Intent with Tennessee throughout the day.

    If you want a full schedule of when Tennessee’s targets and commits are signing, you can find that here.

    Before the Vols add any more to their class (or have any last-minute surprise flips), here’s a look at where Tennessee’s current 2020 class stands.

    Total Commits: 18
