Tennessee volleyball recruiting class is off to a good start
The Class of 2020 is off to a good start, with four high-caliber players committing to play at the Volunteers. The Lady Volquest won their third straight SEC tournament and are off to a great start in their recruiting process. The upcoming season will be a challenging one, with teams from the Southeastern Conference, the Big Ten and the Pac-12 all vying for the top spot. With four players committing to Tennessee, the Lady Vols’ recruiting class should have no problem filling out the roster in time.
The incoming class will also bring three players to the program, adding depth to the middle blocker, setter, and defensive specialist positions. Sydney Lemon, a 6-foot-2 middle blocker from Indian Wells, Calif., is the newest addition to the team. She played for the Mavericks Volleyball Club last season and for TStreet Volleyball Club this season. In addition to her strong performances, she recently earned a silver medal at the LA qualifier. She will likely compete for a gold medal again this summer at Junior Nationals.
Vols are in the mix for a number of top recruits
Josh Heupel’s Tennessee Vols are seeing great hiring results so far. The 2023 class currently has nine players committed and Tennessee is ranked ninth in the state. Despite the number of in-state players committed, Tennessee remains in the mix for many of the nation’s top recruits. Three-star offensive tackle Aiden Possell has visited Volquest and said the Vols are the right place to play in the future.
The 2022 recruiting class was relatively unimpressive. However, Tennessee has a few in-state recruits in the mix for the 2023 class, including four-star edge player Caleb Herring. The Vols’ blue chip ratio stands at 43%, which is just short of the 50 percent mark to reach the 50 percent threshold. Volquest is also in the mix for several top recruits in the 2023 class.
Ohio State is lining up to pull top Florida talent
There are a couple of reasons why Ohio State is lining up to pull top-notch Florida talent. For starters, the coaching staff has established relationships in Florida, where they have recruited prep superstars like Nick Bosa, Shaun Wade, and Nicholas Petit-Frere. This has helped them land a number of high-profile recruits like Singletary. And since Day has developed a relationship with the state’s elite talent, these prospects are more likely to want to stay in Columbus than transfer elsewhere.
Young is another top Florida prospect who has a similar set of programs circling him. The ‘Floridian’ visited with Saban, Swinney, and Napier in January. The latter two have been vying for Young’s services. Ohio State and Alabama have also been in the mix in recent months. But the newest buzz is on Florida, which has been ranked high in both recruiting rankings and the recruiting process.
Former Michigan quarterback Joe Milton plans to transfer to Tennessee
Former Michigan quarterback Joe Milton has entered the transfer portal to play football at Tennessee. According to Yahoo! Sports’ Pete Thamel, Milton entered the transfer portal on Feb. 18. He’ll have immediate eligibility when he transfers to Tennessee. Milton will likely start for Tennessee this season. He was the starting quarterback last season for the Wolverines and finished with a 6-3 record, passing for 1,077 yards and four touchdowns while completing just under half of his passes.
While his commitment to Tennessee is a surprise, the news of Milton’s decision comes at a perfect time for the Volunteers. The former Michigan quarterback struggled with a thumb injury late in the season but still managed to start five games for the Wolverines. Milton threw for 1,077 yards on 80-of-141 attempts, with four touchdowns and four interceptions. The Vols went 3-7 last season in the SEC and hired former UCF coach Josh Heupel as their new head coach in February.
