If the Tennessee Vols are going to be elite, they need to dominate in-state recruiting.
Tennessee may not be the most talent-rich state in the country, but there’s still a lot of talented in-state players the Vols need to land.
And one of those players is 2022 cornerback Myles Pollard, 6-foot-1/180 lbs from Brentwood, TN (Ravenwood).
Pollard hasn’t been rated yet by any of the major recruiting services, but he recently received a positive review from Rivals recruiting analyst Josh Hemholdt.
Here’s what Hemholdt had to say about Pollard after seeing the young cornerback at the DGA mini-camp in Nashville this week.
This was my first time seeing Pollard in-person, and what I first noticed was how big he is for the cornerback position. His listed size of 6-foot-2 and 180 pounds looked right on, and he still brings all the athleticism, fluidity and change of direction abilities you need to play cornerback. There are still developmental things he can polish, but the raw tools are there to be an outstanding collegiate cornerback.
Pollard, who possesses the ideal size that Vols head coach Jeremy Pruitt looks for in his cornerbacks, isn’t receiving hype as one of the top in-state 2022 players, but that could be changing in the near future. It’s clear he’s a player on the rise.
For now, Pollard’s only reported offers are from Kentucky and Western Carolina.
Tennessee needs to quickly jump in the mix for the up-and-coming cornerback. He’d make a nice addition to UT’s 2022 recruiting class.
