    Cobb is coming off his official visit to Tennessee after taking official visits to Clemson and Auburn earlier this month. The weekend visit to Knoxville was Cobb’s third in his recruitment, visiting Tennessee for South Carolina game in October and for a junior day in early March.

    The 5-foot-11, 186 pound running back’s official visit to Clemson was his first visit to the ACC power after the Tigers offered him in May. Cobb has frequently made the 55 mile visit to Auburn, seeing the Tigers in June, March and for the Iron Bowl last November.

    Cobb’s July 1 decision marks the start of a busy recruiting stretch for Tennessee where targets Francis Mauigoa, Cristian Conyer, Malik Benson and Jalen Smith will all announce college decisions.

    Las Vegas power running back Will Stallings Jr. is Tennessee’s only running back commit while the Vols continue to target Cobb, Treyaun Webb and Desean Bishop.
