Northeast Mississippi Community College (Booneville, Miss.)
The one player on this list who didn’t commit to Josh Heupel or Jeremy Pruitt, Andison Coby was a late signee but made it in time to participate in Tennessee football’s spring practice. Initially a graduate of American Heritage High School in South Florida’s Broward County, Coby will be a sophomore for the Vols and was a three-star across the board.
Although receiver isn’t a major position of need for the Vols right now, it’s a position of a lot of unproven talent given the departures of Josh Palmer and Brandon Johnson. Only Velus Jones Jr. and transfer JaVonta Payton are proven players at the position. Jalin Hyatt has the most hype outside of Jones, and Cedric Tillman was the top producer in spring ball.
However, there’s room for Coby to work his way into the rotation, especially given Josh Heupel’s up-tempo offense that will likely rely heavily on a deep receiver rotation. Given his 6’2″ 180-pound frame, Coby has the ability to line up on the outside or inside at the position.
As a result, we’ve got Coby higher up on this list than the other guys. This position is more open than it looks, and Coby’s participation in spring ball gives him somewhat of an advantage. Don’t be shocked if he makes an early impact.
