Tennessee Football might not be doing too well on the field, but Jeremy Pruitt isn’t slowing down on the recruiting trail anytime soon.
Jeremy Pruitt is known for being an elite recruiter. He’s been dominant on the recruiting trail everywhere he’s been, and that’s no different as Tennessee football’s head coach.
Pruitt was able to hold onto Tiyon Evans, a JUCO running back that previously committed to Tennessee before he de-committed in September.
Evans is a top-rated JUCO running back and would add to the already great backfield that Tennessee has with Ty Chandler and Eric Gray. Evans would likely be apart of a one-two punch with Gray next season.
After being non-committal for the past two months, Evans jumps back on the Tennessee recruiting bandwagon after making the announcement on Twitter on Saturday.
Evans is currently ranked as the No. 1 running back in JUCO and the No. 3 player overall, according to 247Sports.
It seems like Tennessee played defense in keeping Evans after he de-committed. Other teams trying to recruit Evans were unable to get him on campus due to recruiting restrictions.
Tennessee’s running back coach, Jay Graham, has done a good job at recruiting solid running backs into the program at Tennessee.
Tennessee football will need all the help it can get in the future if nothing changes when it comes to the offense. The Vols offense has been horrendous recently, and it doesn’t seem like it’s going to get better anytime soon, so another top-level running back added to Tennessee’s roster might help the offense improve a little more.
