Tennessee shoots up 4-star WR Jacob Copeland’s list after Jeremy Pruitt hire


Jacob Copeland-Florida recruiting-Tennessee

Tennessee finally hired its coach Thursday in Jeremy Pruitt. He comes to Rocky Top with a reputation as a terrific recruiter.

He hasn’t been on the job long but is already making his impact known on the recruiting trail. Class of 2018 wide receiver Jacob Copeland took to Twitter Thursday to show his excitement in Tennessee’s hire.

Copeland could be an immediate difference maker for the Vols next season. He rates as a 4-star prospect and ranks as the No. 9 wide receiver in the class, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Tennessee doesn’t hold a commitment from a wide receiver this cycle. The Vols struggled with depth at the position this season, so it will have to be addressed by the new staff.

Tennessee would be wise to take on three or four wide receiver prospects this cycle. Pruitt will likely put in a call to Copeland before long.

The Pensacola, Fla., product de-committed from Florida on Nov. 25. He had appeared to be trending towards Alabama since.

Copeland had a Tennessee offer, but he was not very seriously considering the Vols. It seems that has quickly changed.

Expect a few more high profile names to give the Vols a bit more of look now with Pruitt at the helm.

The people have spoken. And by people I mean, of course, my Twitter followers, which when you think about it covers everyone of importance.
