One of the nation’s top 2021 players included the Tennessee Vols in his top six on Tuesday.
Four-star quarterback Brock Vandagriff revealed that UT, along with Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia and Oklahoma, are currently his top schools.

Vandagriff, 6-foot-3/200 lbs from Bogart, GA, is rated by 247Sports as the No. 2 player in the state of Georgia and the No. 4 pro-style quarterback in the nation. He’s also rated as their No. 35 overall 2021 recruit.
The Georgia native told Rivals that he likes Tennessee because of the “environment that Jeremy Pruitt has built”. Vandagriff, who says he has family that lives in the Knoxville area, also noted his admiration for Vols quarterbacks coach Chris Weinke.
While it sounds like Tennessee is as well positioned to land the talented signal caller as any of the other schools in Vandagriff’s top six, it’s obvious they’re going to have some stiff competition.
Clemson and Georgia, specifically, will be very tough to beat out for Vandagriff. Especially since Clemson will essentially be exiting the Trevor Lawrence era when Vandagriff is ready to sign. The Tigers clearly don’t have any issues starting a true freshman quarterback, which could be very appealing to Vandagriff (it should be noted that Clemson hasn’t offered Vandagriff yet, but that’s because Dabo Swinney reportedly doesn’t offer quarterbacks until they’re about to enter their junior season).
Tennessee doesn’t currently have any commits to their 2021 recruiting class.
