Tennessee has made the cut for four-star receiver Zion Puckett, who trimmed his list down to ten schools this weekend. Puckett included the Vols, along with Alabama, Auburn, Duke, Miami, Notre Dame, Ohio State, South Carolina, Stanford and Texas A&M.
The Griffin, Georgia native is a part of the 2019 class. Puckett is 6-1, 190 pounds and currently sits as the 36th ranked receiver in the country, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
While Puckett is recognized as a receiver, he plays on both sides of the ball for Spalding High School. He has a shot to play either receiver or cornerback at the college level. At 6-1, Puckett fits the mold that Jeremy Pruitt has been looking for in his corners.
First things first, however, Tennessee has plenty of work to do here. Ohio State is the lone crystal ball projection for Puckett. Alabama, Auburn and Tennessee are the schools currently recruiting him the hardest, according to Puckett himself.
