Tennessee Makes Top Group For Local Running Back

Karns running back DeSean Bishop released a top eight including Tennessee on Tuesday afternoon.

Purdue, Michigan State, Virginia Tech, Memphis, Coastal Carolina, Appalachian State and Middle Tennessee joined the Vols in Bishop’s top eight colleges.

Bishop led local Karns High School to a 7-5 record and a run to the second round of the 2021 TSSAA 5A State Playoffs. The 5-foot-10, 194-pound running back is one of the best prep players in the Knoxville area, running for over 3,000 yards in his junior season. Bishop’s size is one of the only question marks about his game transitioning to the college level.

Bishop ranks as a three-star recruit and the No. 887 player in the country according to the 247sports composite rankings. The local standout ranks as the No. 60 running back and No. 33 player in the state of Tennessee.

Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel, running back’s coach Jerry Mack and the rest of the Vols’ staff is targeting four-star running back Treyaun Webb. Tennessee made Webb’s top five back in March and the talented running back will visit Knoxville in mid-June before making a June 30 commitment.

The Vols currently have the No. 9 class in the country according to 247sports and the No. 5 class nationally according to On3.

Tennessee is coming off its biggest recruiting weekend of the Heupel era where they hosted a number of blue-chip prospects.
