We may be early on in the 2012-2013 recruiting season, but it's never too early to begin targeting certain players that could be potential studs. Rather than just list a slew of good-not-great players from East Tennessee and northern Georgia, I've set my sights high with this group of five.
All but one of these players has a specific coach from the Tennessee Volunteers' staff, so you know that the team is serious about these guys.
That one player who doesn't yet have a coach targeting him is the best in-state prospect in the 2013 class. If Derek Dooley is trying to rejuvenate Tennessee as the premier program in the state, getting this guy is imperative.
