Vols Offer 2020 Prospect Tyrell Lawrence

The Vols go north of the border yet again.

NCAA Football: Alabama at Tennessee Bryan Lynn-USA TODAY Sports

The Tennessee Volunteers are no strangers to Canada. After recruiting Jonathan Kong and Josh Palmer from our northern neighbors, the Vols are now going after 2020 prospect Tyrell Williams.

Williams is a 6-foot-7, 375-pound behemoth from Burlington, Ontario, who played at Clarkson Football North High School. He can play both the offensive and defensive line, but is listed as an offensive lineman by both 247 Sports and Rivals.

He currently fields offers from both Howard and UMass on top of Tennessee.

Unfortunately, there is no current star rating due to him being a 2020 prospect, but that will come eventually.

The upside is pretty obvious here. Tennessee still needs help in the trenches on both sides of the ball and Lawrence can provide depth in both areas.

His size also helps, as well. If Jeremy Pruitt and co. can recruit and develop this kid in the right way, they may have found a diamond in the Canadian rough.
