Recruiting often puts football coaches in weird situations, just ask Butch Jones.
While shoring up his class of 2017, Jones found himself face-to-face with 3-star linebacker commit Shannon Reid and his pet snake in December, which Reid tweeted Saturday.

Reid committed to Tennessee on Dec. 7 and signed his financial aid agreement on Dec. 21. He’s the 39th-highest rated outside linebacker according to 247Sports and is Tennessee’s highest-rated outside linebacker commit.
Tennessee currently sits with 26 members in its 2017 recruiting class, which ranks 11th in the country.
