Tennessee Recruiting: Prospects, Coaches React to Orange Carpet Day

It’s a big day in Knoxville.

Tennessee’s annual Orange Carpet Day was held today in Knoxville, which is essentially just one big recruiting visit for all current commits and future targets. It’s a big day of the offseason, especially after last season’s success.

One of the biggest gets (so far) of the 2018 recruiting cycle is quarterback Adrian Martinez. He gave props to Alontae Taylor and Anthony Grant for their performance in the home run derby.

Taylor is already committed to Tennessee, but Grant is a potential replacement for Jashaun Corbin and Master Teague, who the Vols lost out on.

Here’s Cade Mays — Tennessee’s biggest current commit — posing with Greg Emerson and Jerome Carvin. Both Emerson and Carvin are current 2018 targets for Butch Jones and his staff.

Finally, here’s the newest Tennessee commit D’Andre Litaker. He’s a four star defensive tackle from the mid-state area and one of the top rated players in Tennessee’s current class.

We’ll have more coverage if news breaks today. I’d be surprised if Tennessee didn’t land a couple commitments over the weekend.
