    Christian Brothers High School guard Chandler Jackson is officially visiting Tennessee this weekend, the four-star told earlier this month.

    Jackson ranks as the nation’s 116th best prospect and 16th best combo guard according to the 247sports composite rankings. 247sports own rankings are higher on Jackson, ranking the senior guard as the nation’s 56th best prospect.

    Despite ranking as a four-star prospect, Tennessee didn’t offer the instate guard until Sept. 26— decently late in the recruiting process.

    However, Jackson doesn’t seem spurned by the late offer, quickly lining up a visit to Knoxville.

    Jackson has been busy taking visits this fall, seeing Virginia Tech in September, Kansas in October and has a visit lined up to Memphis for “Memphis Madness” Thursday night, Tennessee this weekend and Texas later in the month.

    The 6-foot-4, 205 pound guard told Stockrisers that he’s also trying to line up a visit Florida State.

    Knoxville Catholic guard B.J. Edwards is currently Tennessee’s only commit in the 2022 class. The Vols are after a handful of highly touted players and are in the top group for five-stars Cason Wallace and Dillon Mitchell.

    The Vols were in the top groups for blue-chip recruits Jett Howard, Julian Phillips and Jalen Hood-Schifino but all three committed to other programs.

    Ryan Schumpert is a senior at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville who has covered University of Tennessee athletics since the moment he stepped on campus. He just completed a three-year stint with the Daily Beacon, the last two of which as the Sports Editor. Ryan also spent last three years at Volquest providing strong Tennessee baseball coverage of Tony Vitello's resurgent program. While the bulk of Ryan's responsibilities involved beat coverage and writing, he also recorded podcasts for both the Beacon and Volquest. Did we leave out the part about Ryan interning for the Smokies? Ryan's work ethic, versatility, and strong writing skills are but three of the reasons why Vol Nation will be hearing from Ryan for years to come.
