Tennessee entered the Jeremy Pruitt era with a huge problem at cornerback. You can make the argument that that problem has already been corrected. At the very least, it’s headed in the right direction. Alontae Taylor and Bryce Thompson look like two young studs of the future at the position, each contributing in huge ways in their first season at Tennessee.
Going a step further, Pruitt has gained commitments from four-star Tyus Fields and three-star Warren Burrell. On Monday, Tennessee got in the hunt for another cornerback prospect.
The Vols offered Shilo Sanders, the son of NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders.
I am extremely grateful and blessed to receive an offer from Tennessee! Thank you to my coaching staff and teammates @tcchfootball pic.twitter.com/y8p1ULkIcA— Shilo Sanders (@ShiloSanders) November 6, 2018
Sanders is a three-star cornerback prospect out of Cedar Hill, Texas. He stands in a 6-0, 180 pounds and ranks as the 921st prospect in the 2019 class, according to 247’s composite rankings.
Naturally, Florida State is thought of as the leader for Sanders. The Seminoles offered Sanders back in early October and currently hold the only crystal ball projection for him. South Carolina is the other major player here. They hosted Sanders on an official visit in October.
Tennessee is the fourth SEC offer for Sanders, who also holds offers from South Carolina, Texas A&M and Georgia.
