The 2019 National Signing Day was kind to the Tennessee football team. Jeremy Pruitt and company signed at a top-12 class. Here is what went right.

Just like that the 2019 National Signing Day has come and gone. It started off as a somewhat shaky day for the Tennessee football team, but in the end, it turned out to be quite alright.

This was Jeremy Pruitt’s first full year working on a recruiting class, and it showed with the type of talent he and the coaching staff were able to bring to Knoxville.

National Signing Day doesn’t carry as much weight as it did a few years ago. The early signing period makes the day less fun, however, Tennessee fans shouldn’t be disappointed in what was accomplished in the 2019 recruiting class.

As always predicting how good a recruiting class will be is hard to do. Butch Jones signed back-to-back top-five classes yet somehow managed to lose a program record eight games in a single season.

In this post, we are going to break down five things that went well for the Volunteers on National Signing Day. We begin with Anthony Harris staying committed to Tennessee.
