The Tennessee Volunteers are cruising into the home stretch before national signing day, managing current commitments and swinging for the fences on top-tier targets who could turn a great class into a historic one.
Coach Butch Jones already has a strong core of 14 early enrollees, and now he's monitoring the prospect fallout from coaching changes during the "silly season." Though the craziness has yet to touch the Vols, there almost certainly will be some flips before national signing day on Feb. 5.
There always are.
Currently, Tennessee sits at 33 commitments, firmly seated at a surprising No. 5 in the 247Sports' Composite Team Rankings—stellar for a program that hasn't experienced a winning season since 2009.
With signing day a little more than three weeks away, there isn't currently much drama surrounding UT. But there still could be plenty of ulcer-inducing moments.
Let's take a look at all you need to know to prepare yourselves for an orange national signing day.
