Christmas has come early for the Vols as Wednesday has proven to be a favorable Early Signing Day.

A lot can change in a year; when Under Armour All-American Wanya Morris decommitted from Florida State in December of 2017 the Vols were just a blip on his radar. The five-star prospect was listing Oklahoma, LSU and Florida among others at the forefront of his newly reopened recruitment, Jeremy Pruitt, in just one season at the helm, changed that.  

Getting the nation’s third best offensive tackle, according to ESPN, to verbally commit in May, was a huge momentum-builder for Tennessee’s recruiting class of 2019. While Morris quietly visited other SEC programs throughout the Fall of 2018 (Auburn and Georgia,) his commitment to Tennessee did not waiver. Pruitt and his staff landed their first five-star prospect on Early Signing Day. 

The 6 foot 6 left tackle out of Loganville, Georgia becomes Tennessee’s highest ranked recruit since 2016, when Trey Smith, who was listed as the number one overall prospect by ESPN, signed.
