The great Mick Jagger once said, "You can't always get what you want," and that holds true more often than not in the world of recruiting.
The Tennessee Volunteers and coach Butch Jones were handed a sobering dose of that reality Monday night when, within mere moments of one another, a pair of badly needed prospects on the offensive line fell off the board as Chuma Edoga committed to USC and Marquel Harrell chose Auburn.
That 0-for-2 swing was an uncommon feeling for Jones, who landed most of his top targets in a 2014 recruiting class that featured 32 commitments and finished in the top 10 on all four major recruiting services.
The Vols already are off to a strong '15 start, securing 11 pledges in a class 247Sports ranks as No. 5 nationally.
But unlike last year's class where the stars aligned, a slew of in-state talent resided close by and a handful of legacy recruits committed to UT, this year's cycle has been more difficult.
If Jones is going to repeat with a top 10 class, he's going to have to land some more top targets left on the board. Let's take a look at some of the highest priorities the Vols are focusing on at each position.
