Top Cornerback set to take official visit to Tennessee

He would be a huge get.

After a rash of decommitments, Tennessee’s 2018 class is suddenly empty in the secondary. Brendon Harris, Trey Dean, Brandon Cross, Tanner Ingle and Jaycee Horn have all backed out of their commitments to Tennessee as the program changed leadership. New head coach Jeremy Pruitt and his staff are working hard to fill that void in the secondary.

They’re starting by swinging away — looking at a few top cornerback prospects. One of which is current UCLA commit Olaijah Griffin. Tennessee sent Brian Niedermeyer out to California to see Griffin.

That visit was apparently enough for Griffin to feel the need to come check out Knoxville. According to Austin Price of Volquest.com, Griffin will visit Tennessee this weekend — making a huge visit weekend even bigger for Pruitt and company.

Griffin is considered a four star cornerback prospect. He lands in the top 50 of both 247’s and Rivals’ national rankings. He has been committed to UCLA since July. We’ll see if Pruitt can make any headway in a crucial recruiting weekend.
