Tennessee’s Recruiting Weekend Is Turning Massive

    by -

    Tennessee will be hosting a huge recruiting weekend in a few days on campus.

    With five-star quarterback commit Nico Iamlaleava heading to town for a 7-on-7 tournament this Friday and Saturday, the Vols are also working on bringing in some of the top prospects in the country at the same time.

    One of the newer announcements from Wednesday comes from running back Treyaun Webb. A four-star running back in the class of 2023 according to 247 Sports, Webb is a dynamic back in the class. Webb’s skill running the ball comes from the balance that his game naturally has. Webb has plenty of power to get between the tackles even though he isn’t necessarily considered a power back, and plenty of speed on the outside even though he may not be the fastest back in the class. All in all, the 6-foot-1, 205-pound running back just has an impressive level of balance to his game.

    Webb has been playing his high school ball for Trinity Christian Academy in Jacksonville, Florida.

    On Mar. 25, Webb announced a Top 5 consisting of Florida, Baylor, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Penn State.

    After Nico Iamaleava committed to Tennessee and became the Vols’ fifth-highest recruit of all time, the five-star quarterback specifically mentioned two receivers that he was trying to recruit to Tennessee: Carnell Tate and Kyler Kasper.

    After Kasper’s announcement on Tuesday, it looks as though Iamaleava will have a chance to meet up with Arizona native in Knoxville.

    Kasper is a consensus four-star wide receiver that has unbelievable size when projecting future SEC wide receivers. Standing at 6-foot-5, Kasper has the ability to be an explosive downfield and red zone receiver on Tennessee’s team.

    Even with the class of 2023 on the immediate horizon, Tennessee still has an eye on the class of 2024.

    On Wednesday morning, offensive lineman Ian Moore announced that he would also be taking a visit to Tennessee this weekend. There are currently no rankings for Moore with how early it is in the recruiting cycle, but the New Palestine, Indiana resident does have 11 offers. Some of Moore’s notable offers include Tennessee, West Virginia, Michigan State, and Iowa State.

    Tennessee wide receiver Jalin Hyatt is projected to play a big role in the Vols’ 2022 offense. Could his brother, Devin Hyatt, be a factor in Tennessee’s future offenses? That’s the question that Tennessee is trying to get the answer to.

    The Vols will be hosting four-star receiver Devin Hyatt this weekend as just one of the offensive weapons Tennessee is bringing onto campus.

    Hyatt has been a highly sought-after receiver, though, and landing the prospect could be a challenge. Hyatt, currently playing for IMG Academy in Florida, has offers from Alabama, Georgia, Auburn, South Carolina, Kentucky, and Ole Miss.

    Last but not least, as mentioned before, Tennessee’s five-star quarterback commit Nico Iamaleava will be on campus this weekend. Iamaleava and his 7-on-7 team will be playing in the Pylon Tournament at Farragut High School on Saturday and Sunday.
