NCAA Football: Jeremy Pruitt Tennessee Head Coach Knoxville News Sentinel-USA TODAY NETWORK

National Signing Day is just a week away. We’ve seen head coach Jeremy Pruitt hit the road himself, making final visits to his top targets along with various members of his staff. Four star receiver Jacob Copeland was next on his list, as Tennessee’s new head man made an in-home visit with the four star receiver.

Copeland documented the visit on Twitter tonight.

It’s clear that Copeland and Pruitt established a relationship throughout his recruitment at Alabama. If you’ll remember, this was his response when Pruitt was announced.

The Volunteers have been in the mix ever since, but Alabama and Florida do seem to have a better shot at this point. You never know, though. Copeland visited Alabama last weekend and will visit Florida later this week.

Copeland is a top 100 player according to 247 Sports. Their crystal ball projections are dead split on the Gators and the Crimson Tide.

Tennessee has already signed four star receiver Alontae Taylor and currently has four star receiver Jordan Young committed. Copeland is by no means a must have, but any added juice on offense would certainly be welcomed. We’ll hold out hope here until next week.
