Finding a quarterback in the 2015 class is an absolute must for the Vols.
Tennessee has already missed on a couple of 2015 prospects like Zach Gentry (Texas) and Jarrett Stidham (Texas Tech).
With that in mind, the Volunteers offered 2015 dual-threat quarterback Sheriron Jones on Wednesday.
Tennessee offered Rancho Verde QB Sheriron Jones, Coach Pete Duffy said. Ohio State is coming tomorrow to watch.

Jones is a 6’2″/192 lb four-star quarterback from Moreno Valley, CA (Rancho Verde). He currently holds notable offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Florida and Nebraska.
The California native looks like a solid recruit. He has fairly good arm strength (as you can see at the :50 mark of the above video) and good speed for a quarterback. He doesn’t have Michael Vick speed out there, but he’s not Justin Worley either.
The Vols are obviously all in on five-star quarterback Torrance Gibson right now.
If, however, they were to miss on Gibson, then Jones could be a diamond in the rough for Tennessee. He doesn’t quite have the accolades of Gibson, but it looks like he could definitely one day be a starting quarterback in the SEC.
