Tennessee’s team of recruiters will test the conviction of two commitments this weekend.
The Vols will host two 4-star prospects that are committed to sign with two SEC East rivals. It’s a small group but it should be exciting.
Here are the visitors set to take their official visits to Tennessee this weekend:
DT Tyler Clark – Americus Sumter County South (Americus, Ga.)
Clark, a four-star prospect, has been committed to Georgia since May. However, coaching turnover in Athens, Ga., has opened the door for Tennessee. Clark, who is 6-foot-3 and 290 pounds, is the No. 24 defensive tackle in the nation and the No. 19 prospect in Georgia.
CB Lavert Hill – Martin Luther King (Detroit, Mich.)
Hill is thought to be leaning towards Michigan, but the Vols have to be happy to get the 4-star prospect on campus. The 5-11, 175-pound prospect is rated the No. 11 cornerback prospect in the country and the No. 5 prospect in Michigan.
WR Velus Jones – Saraland (Saraland, Ala.)
Jones committed to Southern California in April. However, the 5-11, 180-pound prospect has continued to look at other schools, including Alabama, Oklahoma, Michigan, Mississippi State and Tennessee. The 3-star prospect is the No. 70 receiver in the nation and the No. 12 prospect in Alabama.
CB Marquill Osborne – Hough (Cornelius, N.C.)
Osborne has been committed to Tennessee since September. The Vols beat out South Carolina, Clemson, LSU and Michigan for the 4-star prospect. The 5-10, 175-pound Osborne is rated the No. 17 cornerback in the nation and the No. 7 prospect in North Carolina.
DE Jordan Smith – Lithonia (Lithonia, Ga.)
Smith has been committed to South Carolina since July. However, the 4-star prospect seems to be considering his options with recent coaching turmoil in Columbia, S.C.. The 6-5 ½, 220-pound Smith is the No. 24 defensive end in the nation and the No. 26 prospect in Georgia.
