With National Signing Day only a couple of days away, things are about to get crazy for the Tennessee Vols and the rest of the college football world.
The Vols, who did most of their heavy lifting during the early signing period, only have a few spots remaining in their 2019 recruiting class.
One of those spots is reserved for five-star offensive tackle Darnell Wright, who is very likely to sign with Tennessee on Wednesday.
As for the other spots, it’s anyone’s guess as to who the Volunteers will end up signing (though I did my best to take a guess).
One player that could end up being a factor for Tennessee is 2019 three-star in-state defensive lineman Kristian Williams.

Williams, who has offers from Indiana, Memphis, Oregon and Tennessee (among others), is a 6-foot-3/297 lb defensive tackle. He’s rated by 247Sports as the No. 6 player in the state of Tennessee and the No. 20 defensive tackle in the nation.
There’s some debate over whether or not Williams, who seems to be trending toward signing with Oregon, would be a “take” for the Vols or not.
I’m of the opinion that Tennessee should definitely take Williams, especially if LeDarrius Cox, who is currently committed to UT, ends up flipping to Auburn.
Landing top in-state players should always be a priority for Tennessee. We’ve seen the Vols whiff on in-state players before and it almost always ends up haunting them.
Of course, even if Tennessee wants to sign Williams, they might not be able to land him over Oregon.
It’s certainly going to be interesting to see how signing day unfolds for the Vols on Wednesday.
