Tennessee is still looking to address their obvious need at wide receiver in the 2020 class. They will have a lot of snaps to replace once Jauan Jennings, Marquez Callaway, Tyler Byrd and Brandon Johnson exit the program this winter, so Tee Martin and the rest of the offensive staff have early playing time to sell on the recruiting trail this summer.
One realistic option has emerged from southern Alabama over the past few months in Kris Abrams-Draine. The four-star receiver solidified Tennessee’s chances on Monday, including the Vols in his top seven.
Abrams-Draine is 6-0, 167 pounds out of Spanish Fort, Alabama. He’s the 12th rated prospect out of the state of Alabama and the 235th overall player in the 2020 class, according to 247 Sports.
He’s seen Knoxville twice this spring, once in March and then again for the Orange and White Game in April.
Abrams-Draine was committed to LSU until April 4th.
The Alabama native picked up a late offer from Florida State last week. The Seminoles landed inside of his top seven on Monday, so that’s a school to watch here over the summer months.
Tennessee currently holds the only crystal ball projection for Abrams-Draine.
