Vols 2020 commitments at OL
Cooper Mays; 4-star
6’3″ 272 lbs; Knoxville, Tenn.; Knoxville Catholic High School
Tennessee football’s star commitment of the 2020 class on the offensive line, Cooper Mays is a legacy guy who chose the Vols despite his older brother, 2017 five-star Cade Mays, flipping to the Georgia Bulldogs. A four-star local product on Rivals, Mays is a top 5 center nationally and a top 15 player in the state of Tennessee.
With Brandon Kennedy as a senior and Ryan Johnson as a junior, Mays is also a big pickup for Jeremy Pruitt to be able to rebuild his depth at center. There’s a chance he could be a starter immediately, which makes his commitment a big deal.
Javontez Spraggins; 3-star
6’3″ 300 lbs; East St. Louis, Ill.; East St. Louis High School
Listed as a guard on 247Sports and a center on Rivals, Javontez Spraggins further rebuilds the Vols’ depth on the interior line. That’s actually a big deal since the major stars from their 2019 recruiting class were at tackle. Spraggins gives Pruitt another potential option at center after Kennedy and Johnson.
A three-star on Rivals, Spraggins is still listed as a top 10 center and a top 15 player overall from the state of Illinois. So he’s another major pickup for Rocky Top who certainly helps with the depth on the line that Jim Chaney always worries about.
Will Albright; 2-star
6’2″ 200 lbs; Greeneville, Tenn.; Greeneville High School
Yes, he’s only listed as a 200-pound lineman right now, which is probably why he’s a two-star. But Will Albright is technically another center, so the Vols got another body there for the future. If he does put on lots of weight, perhaps he could become a valuable player. He at least gives them three commitments overall on the line, and all of them are interior blockers.
