When the Tennessee Vols signed 2020 four-star linebacker/running back Quavaris Crouch, it was viewed as a huge win for the program because of the North Carolina native’s potential to be an elite playmaker at the collegiate level.
But I’m not sure folks realize just how ready Crouch is to contribute for the Volunteers.
Crouch, who was rated as the No. 1 player in the state of North Carolina, already looks like a veteran SEC player.
This is Crouch during a workout that Tennessee’s official Instagram account posted on Tuesday.

It’s absolutely insane that Crouch, who enrolled at Tennessee in January, should still be in high school right now.
We still have no idea how quickly things will click for Crouch on the practice field. But for now, the highly touted athlete is passing the eye test.
Jeremy Pruitt is certainly changing the look of the Vols’ roster by recruiting a different type of player than the ones we’ve seen signed by Tennessee in recent years (players signed during the Butch Jones era, essentially).
If UT keeps adding players that look like Crouch, Tennessee should once again be able to compete with programs like Alabama and Georgia.
