New commit Bailey unfazed by vacant OC spot

In case you missed it, Tennessee got a massive commitment yesterday from quarterback Harrison Bailey, one of the highest rated passers in the 2020 class.

In Volquest’s piece on the Harrison Bailey commitment, the elite quarterback said that Tennessee’s vacant offensive coordinator position didn’t bother him. Bailey said that his mind was made up and he trusts Jeremy Pruitt to bring in the right guy.

“I had a little talk with my family when we found out Coach Helton was leaving, but it really did not bother me. Coach Pruitt talked to me about it as soon as it came out and I fine with it.” (Via Volquest)

Tennessee seems to have narrowed down their choices to a handful of names, most notably former Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze.

A new offer

Tennessee has sent out an offer to JUCO defensive lineman Keonte Schad, who is currently committed to Minnesota. The 6-3, 270 pound lineman is currently enrolled at Ellsworth Community College. After being committed to Minnesota for over six months, Tennessee’s offer has prompted Schad to explore his options, as he told 247 Sports.

Vols go in-home with Jammie Robinson

Is there a better name for a defensive back prospect?

Tennessee visited Robinson on Thursday night, Robinson noted in a since deleted tweet. Tennessee sent quality control assistant Shelton Felton on the visit.

South Carolina is thought of as the leader for the four-star defensive back, holding eight crystal ball projections currently. Robinson is the 335th ranked player in the 2019 class, according to 247’s composite rankings.

Tennessee currently has cornerbacks Tyus Fields and Warren Burrell committed at cornerback, along with Aaron Beasley, Jaylen McCollough and Anthony Harris at safety.
