While Tennessee’s junior day in February focused on in-state prospects, the Vols will direct their attention to out-of-state prospects this weekend for their second junior day of the year.
Tennessee will focus its attention on out-of-state prospects at Saturday’s junior day, contrary to last month’s events where the Vols focused on in-state recruits.
While most prospects are still relatively close to Knoxville, Tenn., at least two will have to make a long trip to check out the Vols: four-star defensive end Zachary Carter from Hillsborough High School (Tampa, Fla.) and four-star offensive tackle Grayson Reed from Cypress Creek High School (Houston, Texas).
The Vols will also try to test the dedication that four-star safety Xavier McKinney from Roswell (Ga.) High School has to Alabama. He committed to the Crimson Tide in September but that was before Kirby Smart left the Tide to become the head coach at Georgia.
Several states, outside of Tennessee, will be represented on Saturday. Four-star receiver Trey Blount from Pace Academy (Powder Springs, Ga.), four-star receiver/safety Hamsah Nasirildeen from Concord (N.C.) High School, four-star cornerback Amir Riep from Colerain High School (Cincinnati, Ohio), four-star tight end Logan Rudolph from Northwestern High School (Rock Hill, S.C.), four-star defensive end Jordan Williams from Frank W. Cox (Virginia Beach, VA) and four-star offensive tackle Jedrick Wills from Lafayette High School (Lexington, Ky.) are all expected to attend.
The Vols will host two four-star prospects from Bishop Sullivan Catholic (Virginia Beach, Va.): defensive tackle Breyon Gaddy and linebacker Teradja Mitchell. Gaddy is a consensus four-star prospect. Mitchell has been rated a four-star prospect by 247Sports.
