Tennessee has turned its attention to the Class of 2019.
The Vols picked up a commitment Thursday from 4-star offensive lineman Jackson Lampley, who attends Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville. If coach Jeremy Pruitt plans to have a productive signing class next year, locking down the state must be a priority.
Recruiting expert Woody Wommack joined the SEC Country podcast to discuss the Vols’ 2018 class and strategy moving forward. He thinks funneling the top talent in the state toward Rocky Top will be tough, but extremely important.
“I’m wondering, we saw the emphasis they put on players from California this past class and losing out late,” Wommack said. “I’ll be curious to see. Lampley is one of those guys who basically signed a letter of intent with his birth certificate.
“There are a lot of good players. There is a reason Urban Meyer is down here on a regular basis. Clemson is creeping in. They are going to have competition. The question is will they go after it or focus on California and Atlanta?”
