Pruitt, staff prepare for big recruiting weekend

Knoxville, (WVLT)— WELL THE LIFE-BLOOD OF ANY COLLEGE FOOTBALL PROGRAM IS RECRUITING .AND WITH THE EARLY SIGNING PERIOD STARTING NEXT WEDNESDAY COACH PRUITT HAS BEEN BUSY
TRYING TO SECURE SOME OF THE NATION'S TOP TALENT..

AS A RESULT, AUSTIN PRICE OF OUR MEDIA PARTNER VOLQUEST.COM SAYS PRUITT WILL NOT NAME A NEW OFFENSIVE
COORDINATOR UNTIL AFTER SIGNING DAY..

MY QUESTION TO AUSTIN. HOW WILL THAT AFFECT HIS RECRUITING EFFORTS? HIS RESPONSE, “Well, there are certain players like Darnell Wright out of Huntington West Virginia he's a top 10 player nationally, Eric Gray the only three time winner of Mr. Football in the state of Tennessee. I think for those guys, it does not affect, they've been here so many times they're comfortable with the coaches recruiting them, but for a quarterback that's not committed it's a different story. Tennessee's been trying to recruit Taulia Tagovailoa, Tua's little brother that one would be the one it affects but the guys they've had on Campus 4, 5, 6 times including Gray, who's expected to be back on Campus unofficially this weekend."

AND A BUSY WEEKEND IT IS FOR THE UT COACHING STAFF WITH SEVERAL OFFICIAL VISITORS EXPECTED ON CAMPUS. ONE FINAL PUSH BEFORE SIGNING DAY NEXT WEDNESDAY.
