Jeremy Pruitt and Tennessee football have been working hard during quarantine to get recruits to commit to the Vols, especially in Tennessee.
One thing that Jeremy Pruitt had to do as Tennessee football’s head coach is getting the Vols back to the basics and start dominating in-state recruiting again.
In the previous administration, we saw tons of stories where recruits wanted to come to Tennessee but were never offered, or when the Vols did offer in-state recruits, they couldn’t win them over.
That can’t happen any longer. Tennessee can not lose out to out-of-state schools or even in-state schools on top recruits. I think Pruitt knows that, and he’s been working hard to make the Volunteer State Tennessee territory once again.
Recently, Tennessee got the commitment from in-state wide receiver, Walker Merrill, last week, and another in-state recruit has his eyes on Tennessee, along with a few other SEC schools.
Kyndrich Breedlove shortened his offer list on Monday night to five teams, and Tennessee is on that list along with Auburn, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, and LSU.
The top-400 prospect is preparing for his senior season at Pearl-Cohn High School in Nashville, and we could see another season where he dominates in every facet of Pearl-Cohn’s offense.
He’s 5-10, 165 pounds, and he’s ranked No. 13 in the state of Tennessee. He had over 600 rushing yards last season while playing on both sides of the football.
Whether he wants to play on offense or defense at the next level, he has the athleticism and speed to compete in the secondary or as a receiver. I could see him as a slot receiver or even filling in at running back some.
The more versatile Tennessee’s offense can be, the better. If Tennessee can have a few guys that can play multiple positions, then Tennessee’s gameplan can be harder to beat.
It isn’t set in stone yet, but if Pruitt can add Breedlove to his in-state commitment list, then it will be a big help in bringing more recruits to Rocky Top, both in-state and out-of-state.
