The Tennessee Volunteers have continued their search for bigger backs during the 2019 recruiting cycle. After adding 6-2, 215 pound Jeremy Banks and 6-1, 218 pound grad-transfer Madre London, Jeremy Pruitt and Tyson Helton clearly have a type. Someone who fits that type is Breece Hall, who paid a visit to Knoxville on Friday.

Hall visited Tennessee after picking up an offer from the Vols in late March. The 6-2, 205 pound back is out of Wichita, Kansas. Hall racked up 2,082 yards on the ground last year and pushed through for 32 touchdowns.

Hall holds offers from a handful of Big Ten schools, including Michigan, Iowa and Nebraska. His home-state schools Kansas State and Kansas have also extended offers. Tennessee and Ole Miss are his lone SEC offers to this point.

He is the 38th ranked running back in the country and the third best player in the state of Kansas, according to 247 Sports. Tennessee doesn’t yet have a running back committed to their 2019 class.
