Jeremy Pruitt has only been the Tennessee Vols’ head coach for two-and-a-half years, but he’s already earned a reputation on the recruiting trail as being honest and trustworthy.
In other words, when Pruitt makes a promise to a recruit, it’s a promise that’s going to be kept.
That’s why Vol fans should be extremely excited about the promise Pruitt is making to recruits.
2021 four-star tight end Hudson Wolfe recently told 247Sports that Pruitt is promising the program will win “big games” in the coming years.
“I trust him and I believe what he’s saying when they say that they’ll win this year, and in the next couple years they’ll win big games,” said Wolfe.
The Vols went 8-5 in 2019 after a dreadful 1-4 start to the season.
Tennessee’s schedule doesn’t leave much room for improvement in 2020, with road games against Oklahoma and Georgia on the schedule (plus home tilts against Florida and Alabama).
But Pruitt is confident the Vols will be able to win games in 2020. And he’s even more confident the program will win “big games” in the next couple of years.
There’s no doubt Pruitt is building the program the right way. There have been no shortcuts. It’s just been Pruitt and his staff working hard to build a championship contender from the mess that Butch Jones left behind.
As for Wolfe, he’s highly interested in Tennessee and plans on making a decision on June 13. As an in-state player, he’s definitely a player the Vols need to land.
Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State, and Ole Miss are also in the mix for the dynamic tight end.
