Freshman tight end Ethan Davis stole the show during Tennessee football’s spring practice. His former teammate at Collins (Ga.) Hill High School was paying attention, and plans to take a trip to Knoxville later this month.
C.J. Hector, a wide receiver out of Collins Hill, will visit Tennessee later this month.
“I look forward to that, and look forward to meeting the coaches and getting back on campus,” Hector said.
Hector stands at 5-foot-10 and 169 pounds. He recently received his first power-five offer from Louisville. He hopes to continue showing out on the 7-on-7 circuit as well as several camps.
“Showing my strengths, I would say my ball skills,” Hector said. “Being able to go both ways, I think that’s my two strengths. And leading my team, letting them know what to do. My route running, my catching. Just a ball player, my strengths.”
The class of 2025 prospect maintains a solid relationship with current Tennessee tight end Davis. The two stay in contact, with Davis mentoring Hector as he goes through his recruitment, a process that Davis just recently went through.
“E man, that’s my dog,” Hector said. “He makes sure I’m straight at all times and make sure I’m doing right. He just staying on top of me and make sure I’m working. Making sure I get where I got to get. I would say the relationship is pretty good. Go Vols.”
While he hasn’t had much interaction with Tennessee, a couple of things stand out to Hector about the Vols. One thing was Tennessee’s explosive offense, likely to catch any wide receiver’s attention.
“Great coaching staff, great area, great community,” Hector said. “The way they run their offense I feel like I would have the opportunity to play there in the future.”
As Hector continues his summer circuit, he has a couple of goals in mind. The main one being to grab more scholarship offers.
“I want to prove that I can make plays and you’re going to want to recruit me in the future,” he said.
