Everybody who follows recruiting around these parts know that the Tennessee Volunteers and new head coach Butch Jones have been scorching up the recruiting trail lately.
With seven commitments and with their names on the tips of many national prospects' tongues, the Vols haven't enjoyed this momentum on the recruiting circuit in a long time. With this week's commitment of Washington D.C. cornerback D'Andre Payne, UT's solid start isn't just regional news, anymore. SB Nation recruiting editor Bud Elliott takes a little closer look at Jones' hot start on the parent site today.
Elliott gives us some information in vignette form on all seven UT commitments, and there's even a little blurb in there from yours truly. Take a peek.
It's nice to be getting a little more buzz and some love thrown in the general direction of Knoxville.
