A Josh Malone Commitment Will Send 2014 Vols Class Over The Edge


After suffering through yet another losing season, Vol fans desperately need something to cheer about.

They’re getting that something in the form of a top rated 2014 recruiting class.

Tennessee’s 2014 recruiting class is shaping up to be one of the best in school history. It’s currently rated as the third best class by 247Sports and the second best class by Rivals.

A lot of that is due in large part of the wealth of in-state talent in this class.

The Vols currently have six commits from the state of Tennessee.

That number could grow to seven later today, if Josh Malone, a five-star (Rivals) WR, commits to Tennessee.

Malone’s commitment would give the Vols four of the top five players in the state of Tennessee.

More than that, it would likely catapult Tennessee’s class to the top of the recruiting rankings, giving Vol fans even more reason to be excited about the future of Tennessee football.

It’s easy to be down about Tennessee football right now. Vol fans are frustrated — even with Butch Jones at the helm — due to another 5-7 season.

But the future of Tennessee football is bright — very bright.

The 2014 commits are excited, and rightfully so. Tennessee is building something special and they’re all very much aware of it.





If the Vols add Josh Malone this afternoon, the hype for this class will be out of control.

If the future of Tennessee football is this excited about playing for the Vols, then Vol Nation should be uncontrollable right now.

Josh Malone will announce his college decision today (12/4) at 12:00 PM ET on NBC Sports Network.
