Tennessee was the first team to offer Olenga in the spring and seemed to have him locked down. But the ship might’ve sailed between the Vols and this raw prospect, with not much contact going on anymore and Olenga turning his attention to some other smaller-conference schools.

With Andrew Butcher and Dylan Jackson already in the fold, the Vols have some breathing room at defensive end in this class. Still, UT coaches were impressed enough with Olenga’s upside to be the first team to jump in with an offer.

Though other major programs haven’t followed suit yet, the flood gates could open at any point and UT would have more work to do.
