National Signing Day: Announcement times of interest to Vols fans

It’s National Signing Day, and today we’ll find out how much the solid and frenzied short-term work by Jeremy Pruitt and his staff will actually bear fruit. Tennessee starts the day at No. 20, and there will be a lot of movement among all teams, but we’re hoping that’s the floor for the Vols today and that they might even crack the Top 15, a solid win for a new coach on a short cycle.
Here’s a list of recruits on Tennessee’s recruiting board as of this morning along with their announcement times.

RB Anthony Grant

3-star ATH
7:00 a.m.
Update: Tennessee commit, flipped to FSU this morning.

Tyson Campbell

5-star CB
10:00 a.m.
Probably Georgia.
Update: Yep, Georgia.

Trevon Flowers

3-star S
10:00 a.m.
Tennessee appears to be in good shape here, although Clemson and Kentucky are players.

John Mincey

3-star SDE
10:00 a.m.
 Appears to be between Tennessee and South Carolina. Probably South Carolina.

Tre’Shaun Harrison

4-star ATH
10:45 a.m.
Looking like FSU.
Update: Maybe because it’s FSU. 🙂

Otito Ogbonnia

3-star DT
11:00 a.m.
Appears to be between Tennessee, UCLA, Texas Tech, and Nebraska. It’s looking like UCLA leads this morning.

Quay Walker

4-star LB
11:00 a.m.
Tennessee should be in good shape, but mystery abounds, and Georgia, Alabama, and Auburn are players. Georgia, in particular, has made significant inroads lately and according to some experts, leads.

Olaijah Griffin

5-star CB
1:00 p.m.
 Appears to be headed to USC, but Tennessee and Alabama are still theoretically in play.

Glenn Beal

3-star TE
1:00 p.m.
Appears to be headed to Texas A&M, although Tennessee, Alabama, LSU, and Ole Miss are possibly still factors.
Update: Texas A&M.

Jordan Young

3-star WR
1:00 p.m.
 Appears to be a two-horse race between Tennessee and Florida State, with FSU perhaps leading late.

Joseph Norwood

3-star WR
1:00 p.m.
Appears to be a guy the Vols want if they have room. He’ll likely jump if they call.

JJ Peterson

4-star OLB
1:00 p.m.
Tennessee should be in good shape here, but Alabama is a factor.

Jacob Copeland

4-star WR
2:00 p.m.
Probably Florida, but Tennessee is in the hunt, and if Alabama has room, watch out.

Taiyon Palmer

4-star CB
11:00 a.m. or 2:30 p.m.
Appears to be between Tennessee, NC State, and Nebraska, with NC State the favorite.

Jashaun Corbin

4-star RB
3:30 p.m.
Looking like Texas A&M.

Emmit Gooden

4-star JUCO DT
3:30 p.m.
Tennessee apparently leads, with West Virginia and Arkansas pursuing.

Jermayne Lole

3-star SDE
4:00 p.m.
Arizona State has led most of the way, but Tennessee is a real factor late.

Isaac Taylor-Stuart

4-star CB
5:10 p.m.
Likely USC, but they reportedly might not have room. If not, Tennessee could be in decent shape, although Alabama and Texas A&M are factors as well.
Update: It’s USC.

Cedric Tillman

3-star WR
5:30 p.m.
This should be Tennessee, with UNLV and Hawaii in the picture.

Tavion Thomas

3-star RB
Update: Yep, Cincinnati.

Eddie Smith

3-star CB
Probably Alabama, with Tennessee as a long shot.
Update: Alabama it is.


  1. At the time being, John Mincey and Trevon Flowers have committed to Tennessee. Tyson Campbell did commit to Georgia.

  2. Cedric Tillman and Joseph Norwood committed to Tennessee. I think Tillman was the guy we needed if Jordan Young flips. Looks like we’re starting to fill the class leading into the big announcement from Quay.

    Also forgot to mention earlier that Eddie Smith went to Bama.

  3. Tre’Shaun Harrison signed to FSU.

  4. So does anyone have an opinion on the very first early signing period? Does it seem to take something away from NSD?

  5. We lost Walker to Georgia, but hopefully we can still hold on to JJ Peterson.

  6. Olaijah Griffin is going to USC.

  7. Glad JJ Peterson signed with the Vols!

  8. From Isaac Taylor-Stuart:

    “Last minute decisions switched up and it’s official now… Tune in”

  9. We got a DE off the radar by name of Kurott Garland.

  10. Emmit Gooden signed with the Vols.

  11. With Jashaun Corbin going to A&M it looks like we only have two targets left. It’d be nice to have Jermayne Lole, but actually I think our chances are better with Isaac Taylor-Stuart at this point.
