Safety Stephen Griffin plans to transfer out of the Tennessee program in hopes of earning more playing time elsewhere, a program source confirmed to GoVols247 on Tuesday.

The move — and it was an amicable move — seems to make sense for Griffin, who will be a junior in the fall and would seem to be on the outside looking in for playing time at a position of major strength for the Vols.

His biggest play was that forced fumble, which happened moments after injuries forced him onto the field in the Vols’ win over Kentucky in 2016.

BUFORD, Ga. — Tennessee is looking to recapture its glory from the 1990s.

Just before the Atlanta regional event for Nike’s “The Opening” recruiting camp on Sunday, 3-star Tennessee QB target James Foster got a phone call from Vols’ head coach Butch Jones.

“He was like, ‘Wear the Tennessee towel at ‘The Opening’ today and rip it,'” Foster told SEC Country.

Foster followed Jones’ advice and wore the Tennessee towel on his hip throughout the passing drills that encompassed most of the afternoon. But while Foster was “feeling like a Vol” on Sunday, Tennessee stands firm in third place on his list of eight schools...

Currently, Tennessee sits behind Missouri and Georgia but ahead of South Carolina, Louisville, Southern Miss, Mississippi State and N.C. State. While Vols fans might be feeling good that they can at least jump over Georgia, a school that utilizes a pro-style quarterback, it isn’t that simple. Foster said that Georgia coach Kirby Smart has told him that he “needs” a running quarterback.

“The quarterbacks they’ve got on the roster now really pocket passers,” Foster said. “They need a quarterback that can run. They’re trying to change the tradition and stuff because when the pocket breaks down they can’t run.”

If Tennessee really wants to make a move on Foster, it’ll have to come through his mother.

“Really just get a better bond with my mom,” Foster said. “That’ll probably happen when I go up there on a visit.”

That’s really the missing link in the relationship. New Tennessee quarterbacks coach Mike Canales has been in touch with Foster “every day” lately and he plans on making another visit to Knoxville sometime in April, “probably” for the Orange and White game on April 22...

After picking commitments from a quarterback, running back and two wide receivers wide receiver, the Volunteers landed a defensive prospect in the form of 2018 linebacker Jacquez Jones, a 3-star linebacker out of Tuscaloosa.

Tennessee now has 8 commitments for the 2018 recruiting cycle. Vols landed their quarterback in Michael Penix on Saturday, a running back in JaShaun Corbin on Friday and a 2018 wide receiver in Jatavious Harris on Sunday. Volunteers also added a commitment from 2019 wide receiver Cam Wynn

Three players who could make immediate contributions to the 2017 team and three players who could be role players.

There were 20 players held out of Saturday’s public scrimmage, so deciphering a depth chart involves guess work —

Post-spring guess at Tennessee’s depth chart, with 12 positions listed on each side of the ball because of the multiplicity of the Vols’ offensive and defensive schemes:

Tennessee made a big move in the 247Sports team recruiting rankings for the 2018 class Friday with the commitment of Top247 quarterback Adrian Martinez.

Landing Martinez, a junior at Clovis West High School in Fresno, Calif., helped the Vols climb nine spots to No. 8 nationally in 247Sports' team rankings, which are based on the industry-generated 247Sports Composite.

6-foot-2, 198-pound Martinez, who's ranked the nation's No. 170 overall prospect and No. 7 dual-threat quarterback.

Vols remain second among SEC teams behind only LSU, which is ranked No. 3 nationally. Texas A&M (No. 23) and Kentucky (No. 25) are the only other SEC schools currently in the top 25.

Tennessee is looking to recapture its glory from the 1990s

3-star Melbourne, Fla. running back Jashaun Corbin announced his de-commitment from Tennessee on Tuesday


Quote
Corbin, the No. 8 all-purpose back and No. 382 overall player in the Class of 2018, kept his commitment for less than a month before making his decision.

Maybe Corbin ends up back with the Vols, but de-commitments rarely work out that cleanly. So what’s next at running back for the Vols?

Vols’ top target has been 3-star in-state running back Master Teague III for some time now, and his decision is poised to come soon...

There’s also 3-star Gurley, Ala. running back Tae Provens.

Without Corbin’s de-commitment, Tennessee still would’ve had room in its class for Teague and Provens. So that brings the question of what Tennessee will end up doing with that spot. It’s possible that Tennessee could choose to go with three running backs anyway.

Tennessee has landed seven in-state players, including four of the Volunteer State’s top eight players by 247Sports’ composite rankings. And there’s a real chance that one or both of Greg Emerson and D’Andre Litaker (both defensive tackles) could give Tennessee at least half of the top-10 players in the state once everything is said and done.

“People have to think about, later in life, I want to live in Tennessee,” Harris said. “If I go to Alabama and come back to Tennessee, they’re going to know me as that guy that went to Alabama. If I go to Tennessee, they’re going to know me as that guy, he went in, he tried to help the program, he did all he could for Tennessee.”

“All these other schools are going to tell you you’re set for life if you graduate from here but when you graduate from the University of Tennessee, or if you go anywhere else and you graduate from there then you’re not going to want to stay there and live there if you don’t make it to the league,” Taylor said. “You’re going to want to come back to Tennessee. I’m just letting him know when you graduate from Tennessee, if you don’t make it to the league you’re still set for life. You get a great education at Tennessee and everybody’s going to take care of you.”

Both players tapped into the idea of how they’d be received in their home state once their football careers were over and expressed a desire to stay in the state that they grew up in. Others have said things along the same lines over the last couple months as well.

Tennessee is looking to recapture its glory from the 1990s.

A commitment to Tennessee and a de-commitment from LSU changed the situation...

Commitment of JUCO defensive end Dorian Gerald boosted Tennesee’s class, pushing the number of commits to 17.

Tennessee also secured a surprise commitment on Monday from Greg Emerson while he was at Nike’s The Opening.

Outside linebacker Adam Anderson’s de-commitment from LSU was the final straw.

Tennessee has gained five commitments over the past five weeks. The other three commits are running backs Lyn-J Dixon and Anthony Grant, as well as defensive end Jamarcus Chatman, who until mid-June was an LSU commit.

Volunteers have 20 commitments, with 2018 National Signing Day several months away.

Tennessee will take on only another five or six players in the Class of 2018. The majority of the class is intact heading into the season, the way coach Butch Jones likes it.

Here’s an early glance at where things stand for the Vols’ Class of 2018:


Tennessee ranks as the No. 6 class in the country and the best in the SEC. The Vols hold one 5-star commit in offensive tackle Cade Mays, and eight are 4-star prospects.

#Tennessee DBs coach @CoachCwarren joins #Vols assistants among nation's top recruiters: (FREE) http://bit.ly/2u5mVh9  via @GoVols247



Quote
First-year Tennessee defensive backs coach Charlton Warren on Wednesday night joined a handful of the Vols' other assistant coaches who currently are ranked among the nation's top recruiters by 247Sports

With the commitment of Top247 defensive back Trey Dean of Hampton, Ga., Warren jumped up to No. 39 nationally in the 247Sports recruiter rankings — which are based on prospects' 247Sports Composite ratings — giving Tennessee three assistant coaches who now are ranked among the nation's top 40 recruiters for the 2018 class and five assistants in the top 80.

First-year Vols offensive line coach Walt Wells is Tennessee's highest-ranked recruiter at No. 10 nationally, with first-year defensive line coach Brady Hoke at No. 32.

Tennessee has secured commitments from 20 prospects in the Class of 2018 thus far.

Here’s an early glance where things stand for the Vols’ Class of 2018:




Quote
Alabama took a commitment from an offensive lineman this week, possibly meaning good things for the Vols. Offensive lineman Jerome Carvin previously had his choice between Tennessee and Alabama

But now Carvin likely has lost his spot with the Crimson Tide, which means Tennessee could be sitting alone at the top for him.

Tennessee filled another spot in its 2018 class on Thursday with the verbal commitment of punter Paxton Brooks.



Quote
He’s the No. 2 punter in the country according to Kohlskicking.com

Brooks joins the No. 1 class in the SEC for 2018 and the No. 6 class in our nation. He’s the first specialist in the class.

Vols hold 21 commitments

Quote
Tennessee ranks as the No. 6 class in the country and the best in the SEC.

Six of the top-9 players from the Volunteer State in the Class of 2018 have committed to the Vols.

One spot closed at the moment is the running back position. The Vols have two commitments from Lyn-J Dixon and Anthony Grant. Dixon has started to receive interest in the past month from Clemson, though. Tennessee has kept interest going in other running back prospects such as Demarcus Townsend.
