With Signing Day coming up, Butch Jones still has work to do for a solid Tennessee football recruiting class. Here are five recruits the Volunteers could use.
The addition of Marquez Calloway to the Tennessee Vols football team for 2016 was a huge boost for Butch Jones’s recruiting class, which had suffered a few setbacks with some de-commitments in the weeks leading up to that.
Tennessee is now back to having a Top 20 recruiting class, according to Rivals, which is exactly in the range of where they need to be.
But the work is still not yet finished.
With 17 commitments currently on the board, a late push could provide some major icing on the cake for Butch Jones and his staff.
Obviously, thanks to the previous recruiting classes and the announced return of some guys, the depth and experience for 2016 is already there. This class is to keep the program afloat beyond that.
With a jam-packed weekend of visitors, despite the heavy snow in the forecast for Knoxville and the rest of the Eastern portion of the United States, Jones and his staff have a huge chance to make a statement within the next week.
There is a great opportunity for Tennessee to up its class even further and truly have it in great shape beyond the 2016 season.
With all the eggs in the basket for this upcoming year, a few more last-minute pushes would be huge for the program.
And there are plenty of guys still on their board.
Here are the top five recruits still on the board that the Vols need to be pursuing with National Signing Day a week and a half away.
