Predictions for football prospects in recruiting picking Tennessee
247Sports has a great database and additional features. The Crystal Ball is where recruiting analysts locally, regionally and nationally give their prediction on where they think each uncommitted prospect will ultimately land.
The 10 prospects I referenced on the show today have been offered by UT. They are considered "warm" or "warmer" in their interest in the Vols. These 10 prospects below were predicted to choose Tennessee by 100% of the analysts making their predictions. Those predictions are subject to change of course. It is quite impressive for Butch Jones and his staff to be in this good of a shape for so many players before even entering the summer, much less coach a single game for the Vols.
Here are those 10 players that 100% of the predicting analysts on 247Sports think will land at the University of Tennessee. I compiled this list myself. This isn't a previously published list. This was my research from access to the 247Sports player database of prospects.
