Tennessee football recruiting for 2018 is strong behind center. Here’s an evaluation of the Volunteers’ 2018 quarterbacks situation at the dead period.

Since he’s taken over as head coach for Tennessee football, Butch Jones has done a great job of making sure he has a quarterback committed to the Vols in every class.

Considering what derailed Phillip Fulmer his final year in Knoxville and all the things that can happen, it’s always important to make sure you have two good quarterbacks at least on your depth chart.

This year is no different.

After a year in which he secured only a three-star commitment at the position, Jones already has two quarterbacks committed for the 2018 Tennessee football class. And both are four-stars.

That comes just as he’s about to get ready to find a new starting quarterback this season. After all, the Vols still have to replace Joshua Dobbs.

But this year’s quarterback battle shows why it’s important to always get a quarterback. The race between Jarrett Guarantano and Quinten Dormady involves two elite quarterbacks from different years.

And if the first starter doesn’t succeed, Vols fans will be thankful to have the other guy on the roster.

As we get set to evaluate the quarterback position for the 2018 class, we’ll examine a few things. Our first look will be at each player who is committed.

We’ll also take a look at other players the Vols could be targeting. Then, we’ll end with a prediction and final take.

Here’s an evaluation of the quarterback position for the 2018 Tennessee football recruiting class so far.
