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.

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.

Vols hold 21 commitments

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.

Vols received commitments from wide receiver Shocky Jacques-Louis and cornerback Jaycee Horn the week before. This week was much quieter, which isn’t a bad thing for Tennessee. With a recruiting class this full, the best thing from here on out is quiet weeks with no de-commitments.

Tennessee commit Jamarcus Chatman on possibly looking elsewhere: ‘I’m going nowhere’ http://sec.news/2wt4tRz   #VFL



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

Class of 2018 defensive end Jamarcus Chatman might prove to be one of Tennessee’s most imports commits before this recruiting cycle comes to an end.

The 6-foot-3, 266-pound Rome, Ga., product committed to LSU in April at the Tigers spring game. He de-committed over the summer and pledged on June 25 to sign with the Vols.

Chatman has de-committed before, so what are the chances he does it again?

Not very good.

“I’m solid,” Chatman said. “I’m going nowhere.”

Coach Butch Jones and defensive line coach Brady Hoke made strong impressions on Chatman in his recruitment. For Chatman to back off his commitment to LSU with Ed Orgeron pursuing him was a big win for Jones.

Chatman said the coaches made the difference in where he wanted to play college football.

“What sold me on Tennessee was how great the coaches were,” Chatman said. “When I got there, the atmosphere and the fan base, everyone treated me like they really wanted me. Coach was telling me how I could play early when I get there.”

Playing early is something that is on Chatman’s mind.

Tennessee football’s September to-do list on the recruiting trail http://sec.news/2wvLh5T   #VFL


Quote
Tennessee’s hot recruiting carried throughout the month of August, with the Vols bringing in five commitments in the month.

Vols now have 23 commitments in the Class of 2018. With a class that large, the to-do list can shrink, but also possibly becomes more important.

With the Tennessee season beginning Monday against Georgia Tech in Atlanta, what are some recruiting goals for Tennessee in September?

Tennessee currently holds the No. 6 class in our nation, which is good for best in the SEC.

This could end up being the best class Tennessee coach Butch Jones has brought to campus in his five years. It is imperative to keep most ... of the class together...

With 23 commitments, the attention will shift from pursuit to protecting. Keeping 4-star prospects like cornerback Jaycee Horn and safety Trey Dean committed will make or break the class.

Having nine in-state players committed will help matters, too. The best player in the class — offensive tackle Cade Mays —

Offensive lineman Jerome Carvin is one of the top targets left for the Vols. There isn’t much room left in the class, but Tennessee wants to bring in another offensive lineman. Bama seemed like the biggest competition for Carvin until it began to look at other options on the offensive line. Mississippi State has closed in fast on the Vols in the recruitment. The Bulldogs loom as a dark-horse threat.

Tennessee likely will take another edge rusher or outside linebacker in the class, and one of the top targets is Richard Jibunor.

Auburn seems to have a slight edge right now, but Tennessee is right there. Florida also could make some noise..

A commitment from Jibunor would solidify Tennessee’s spot as one of the best classes in the country.

We discuss what Tennessee’s final number will be in the Class of 2018


Quote
We have 23 2018 commits, how many more can we have this year?

Tennessee has done a good job of using some recruiting gymnastics over the past few season under coach Butch Jones to fit different players into the class. Tennessee could certainly do some similar maneuvering in this class if the right prospects came along.

Right now, I think the most likely scenario will be the Vols bringing on two more players. One on offense — either at wide receiver or the offensive line — and one on defense — either at linebacker or the defensive line.

Jerome Carvin, an offensive lineman from Cordova, Tenn.,  is who I think the Vols will take on offense, though wide receiver Jeshaun Jones remains a possibility.

Linebacker Cam Jones, who is also from Cordova, might be the most likely get on the defensive side of the ball. Vols backed off his recruitment over the summer, but have turned up the heat recently.

BREAKING: Tennessee backup offensive guard Venzell Boulware quits team

Quote
Boulware’s Tweet said: “I would like to thank the University of Tennessee for giving me the opportunity to play here throughout the years. After much prayer and consideration with my family, I’ve decided it’s best for me to pursue other options away from UT for the remainder of my collegiate career. Thanks to all who supported me and thanks to the wonderful fans of Vol Nation. God Bless!”

Boulware is a 6-foot-3, 306-pound redshirt sophomore from Union City, Ga, who made his first start this season in the Vols’ 17-13 win over Massachusetts on Oct. 23.

Boulware, who started three games in 2016, was not listed as a participant in Tennessee’s loss to Georgia last Saturday.

Timing behind a coaching change, overreactions to Georgia, latest on QB Adrian Martinez


Quote
In terms of recruiting, the earlier Tennessee fired Butch Jones the better, if the university did indeed want to go another route with its coach. Waiting a month or two to do it wouldn’t really help the recruiting class.

Don’t forget, this year is the first of the NCAA’s new early signing period for high school football —

This early signing period might push some athletic directors to pull the trigger on coaching changes earlier than normal. If nothing else, a high school prospect would at least know a new coach is coming to the school and any uncertainty about the previous coach’s job security would be removed before the prospect makes a decision.

Class of 2018 would be better if Jones stuck around another year, rather than Tennessee bringing in a new coach. Vols have commitments from 23 prospects in the cycle right now. Even if things get really bad, Tennessee won’t lose all of those commitments.

Some commits have already opened up their commitment to explore other schools, but there has yet to be a de-commitment from the 2018 class

Tennessee recruiting: Latest updates on Vols’ 2018 football class


Quote
The quiet few weeks on the recruiting trail for Tennessee came to a screeching halt this week.

Commit Jatavious Harris announced via Twitter on Monday he had opened his recruitment to all schools. Brendon Harris, no relation, followed on Tuesday with the same announcement.

Tennessee still holds commitments from 23 prospects in the Class of 2018. It is still one of the best classes in the SEC, too.

Things might have started off rocky in the beginning of the week. Nothing of true consequence has happened yet...

Tennessee ranks as the No. 6 class in the country and No. 1 in the SEC. The Vols hold one 5-star commit, offensive tackle Cade Mays, and eight 4-star prospects.

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

Tennessee has not had a de-commitment in the Class of 2018 since the season began. It might be hard to lose track of that, though, because things have seemed so volatile.


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

Vols have had two prospects — Jatavious Harris and Brendon Harris — publicly open their recruitments to other schools. There are rumors more commits have done this too, such as commit Cade Mays.

Wide receiver prospect Alontae Taylor has remained committed to Tennessee, even if it might not sound as firm as some fans would like. Taylor spoke with Matt Freeman about where he is in his recruitment.

“All I can say is that I am committed,” Taylor said. “I can’t say if it’s a hard commit or a soft commit. I am committed.”
