Tennessee has emerged as a player for another top in-state prospect, landing inside of four-star linebacker Bryson Eason’s top eight schools this weekend. The Memphis area player narrowed his list, saying that he’s “focusing” on this specific group of schools.
Eason is the 11th ranked player in the state of Tennessee in the class of 2020. The four-star linebacker checks in at 294th overall in the 247 Sports Composite. As a high-school freshman, Eason totaled 111 total tackles, immediately putting him on the recruiting world’s radar.
The 6-1, 238 pound prospect camped with Tennessee last summer following an offer from the Vols in the spring. In recent weeks, Eason has visited both Ole Miss and Arkansas.
Tennessee added two highly ranked four-star linebackers in the 2019 cycle, signing Henry To’oto’o and Quavaris Crouch. Jeremy Pruitt was about to wrestle away J.J. Peterson away from Alabama in the 2018 cycle as well. The Vols will see Daniel Bituli exit the program after this season and they’ve already lost Darrin Kirkland Jr. to retirement last week. While this group may be young and talented, you can alway use more competitive depth.
Eason is another in-state target to monitor throughout the summer and fall.
