Tennessee Football has been on fire on the recruiting trail recently, but will they get another commitment this week?
In case you’ve been asleep for the past two weeks, Tennessee football has been on absolute fire on the recruiting trail and racked up eight commitments in nine days.
Tennessee surged to the top of the leaderboard when it comes to the number of recruits that have committed to Tennessee. The Vols have 18 commits, which is the most in the country, and the Vols now have the No. 2 recruiting class in the nation, according to 247Sports.
Now, Tennessee fans are waiting around for the next recruit to announce he’s coming to Rocky Top, but when will that come? Will Tennessee’s fire burn out, or will they keep it going with another commitment this week?
Well, Jeremy Pruitt and company will have a few opportunities to close the deal at least one more time with some commitments.
There are four recruits that are on Tennessee’s radar right now. QB Kaidon Salter, LB Aaron Willis, DT Katron Evans, and OT Amarius Mims. All of these players have shown some interest in Tennessee and are planning on verbally committing soon.
Salter and Willis have set official dates for each of their commitments, with May 10th being the date for both of them. That gives Tennessee the opportunity to get two more commitments on the 10th alone, much less with Evans and Mims making their decisions.
Evans and Willis play together at St. Frances Academy in Baltimore, Maryland, and Evans’ decision on the 10th might sway Willis’ decision.
Mims also has a connection with Tennessee as he plays with recent Tennessee commit Cody Brown, who committed to Tennessee on Sunday. They’ve talked about playing together at the next level. Initially, that was expected to be at Georgia, but it could very well be at Tennessee.
There’s potential for Tennessee to get some more great recruits over the next week or so, but they can’t settle. I don’t expect Tennessee to get all four of these guys, but getting one or two would still be great for keeping the momentum.
