Jeremy Pruitt is proving he’s one of the best recruiters in the country after Tennessee football got a former Florida commit.
Tennessee football came into 2020 one of the hottest teams in college football and continued that in their bowl win against Indiana.
It doesn’t stop there though as Tennessee head coach, Jeremy Pruitt, is continuing things on the recruiting trail. While COVID-19 may have shut almost everything down, Pruitt and his staff haven’t stopped recruiting.
It looks like it’s paying off for the Vols, too, after another four-star and five-star commit. Edge rusher Dylan Brooks is the five-star that committed to the Vols out of Alabama committed to Tennessee over Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Florida, Georgia, and Oklahoma, just to name a few.
This is a huge signing for Pruitt and the Vols. Recruits like Brooks have pull with other top recruits. This could lead to Tennessee getting another five-star or two just from this signing alone.
One player that might’ve committed after seeing Brooks make the move is four-star defensive back Kamar Wilcoxson, who grew up a Florida fan, called Florida his dream school, and is now committed to Tennessee. He explained that in his commitment video.
Wilcoxson committed to the Vols over Alabama, LSU, Georgia, Auburn, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, and Florida.
He brings speed to the Tennessee secondary. He can play corner and safety; it depends on where the Vols will need him. He’s one of those ball-hawking players that can single-handily change an offense’s gameplan.
Tennessee is building a solid defense and a solid 2021 recruiting class. After seeing what Pruitt did with the 2020 class and what he’s currently doing with the 2021 class, we could see a very good Tennessee football team taking the field in the fall of 2021 and 2022.
Pruitt and the Vols have a ton of momentum in recruiting right now. I don’t see that changing anytime soon. Tennessee gets commitments in back-to-back days and now look to get a couple more highly rated recruits that took notice.
These two commitments move the Vols to the second-ranked class in the SEC for 2021 and the eighth-ranked class in the country. Nationally, Tennessee is currently behind Ohio State, North Carolina, Florida, Clemson, Minnesota, Iowa, and USC. Also, Peep the Tar Heels and Coach Mac at No. 2.
