One of the Tennessee Vols’ recent commits could be getting a ratings bump in the not-so-distant future.
Rivals recruiting director Mike Farrell mentioned this past week that there are several players whose ratings he’ll be reviewing.
One of those players is 2021 four-star Vols QB commit Kaidon Salter.
Salter is rated in 247Sports’ rankings as the No. 4 dual-threat quarterback in the nation. But in Rivals’ rankings, he’s rated as the No. 12 dual-threat quarterback in the nation.
As a result, Salter is the No. 10 dual-threat quarterback in the nation in 247Sports’ composite rankings.
Salter is currently the Vols’ second-lowest rated four-star commit, just ahead of Kamar Wilcoxson.
If Salter receives a ratings bump from Rivals, he’d likely leapfrog a couple of UT commits. And it would obviously help Tennessee’s points total (UT currently has the No. 3 class in the nation, the Vols fell behind Clemson by 3 points in the 247Sports team rankings).
Of course, there’s also the possibility that Farrell knocks Salter down a few spots in his rankings.
But I think that’s unlikely, considering where Salter is rated in 247Sports’ rankings.
Plus, Farrell’s comments about Salter seem to indicate that Rivals believes they have him rated too low.
Salter seems to be a player on the rise. It certainly feels like his stock is only going to go up from here.
