Lost in the middle of the early signing day festivities was the final four announcement from Tennessee target Khris Bogle. The four-star pass rusher is now one of Tennessee’s highest rated targets remaining as we shift past the early period.

Bogle named the Vols, along with Miami, Florida and Alabama as his finalists in a tweet last week.

The 6-4, 215 pound weakside defensive end prospect checks in as the 57th ranked player in the 247 Sports Composite. Bogle is the 3rd ranked WDE prospect in the country and the 7th overall player out of the state of Florida in the 2019 class.

Miami has been the leader for Bogle throughout the year, but they’re in the midst of a less-than-stellar recruiting cycle. Mark Richt’s program is coming off of a 7-5 season, just one year removed from contending for the college football playoff. With Miami having the 33rd ranked class in the country, along with Tennessee’s added momentum from the early signing period, could the Vols convince the Fort Lauderdale, Florida native to leave his home state?

Tennessee has signed two prospects (potentially) to play the edge position. Roman Harrison for sure, but athlete Quavaris Crouch will likely end up there as well. That shouldn’t factor into the equation with Bogle, however. The Vols just don’t have many difference makers that can get after the passer on the roster, outside of Darrell Taylor. With only a year of eligibility left for Taylor, it’s vital that Jeremy Pruitt and Kevin Sherrer get this position fixed up for the future.

Bogle produced 29.5 sacks in three years of high school play, including a career best 13.5 during his junior season.
