Well, there wasn't much going on in the way of recruiting this week with the Vols on the road and losing to Florida, but we're just going to give you a quick refresher of things that are being rumored around the country as it pertains to UT recruiting.
Again, unless you want to count a bunch of high-profile recruits watching UT lose at The Swamp, not much here...
- The vibe around Andrew Jelks still seems to be very good, and most think that the Paris, Tenn., offensive tackle is going to be a Vol in a matter of time. Surely, if he watched the Florida game, he shouldn't be scared off by the "depth" of "talent" in Knoxville right now. I believe he'll take his visits and be a Vol when all is said and done. He's certainly UT's best chance at landing an offensive lineman, and I fully expect Tennessee to go out and scour the country for another offensive lineman as well.
- As for defensive tackle recruiting, the Vols have to weather a couple of storms to land its two big targets, but they seem to be doing OK on that right now. First off, four-star JUCO commitment Damien Jacobs is visiting Texas A&M this weekend, and he has given mixed signals as to what he may do. Some sites say UT is in danger of him flipping to the Aggies. But others contend that A&M would have to blow Jacobs out of the water for him to switch commitments. It's worth watching this weekend. Also, it appears the Vols have calmed things with Flint, Mich., DT Dan O'Brien who visited Michigan two consecutive weeks, including for the Wolverines' big win over Notre Dame. It's a UT/UM battle, and Rivals Midwest reporter Josh Hemhold tweeted today that Tennessee may hold an edge over Michigan right now. That's huge news for Vols fans who figured O'Brien had all but committed to the maize and blue.
