Tennessee football is hot on the recruiting trail, rounding out the 2024 class. Four-star edge rusher Jordan Ross recently committed, raising the Vols class to No. 6 in the 247Sports rankings.
Josh Heupel isn’t done recruiting yet. Here are five names to watch in the 2024 class.
1. WR Ryan Wingo
Ryan Wingo is a name that many Tennessee fans will recognize. The five-star wide receiver holds a crystal ball to Texas from 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong. Georgia and Missouri are both heavily invovled in Wingo’s recruitment as well. The 6-foot-2 and 205-pound ranks as the No. 24 prospect nationally and the No. 7 wide receiver in the 2024 class.
Wingo attends St. Louis University High School in Missouri. His recruitment will likely go the distance, and it won’t be a surprise if he doesn’t commit until signing day.
2. LB Chris Cole
Four-star linebacker Chris Cole has become a priority for Tennessee down the stretch of his recruitment. Out of Salem High School in Virginia, Cole is the teammate of current Tennessee commitment Peyton Lewis.
Two crystal balls, including one from Wiltfong, project Cole to Georgia. After moving from defensive back to linebacker last season, Cole picked up 76 tackles with 11 of those coming for a loss. Cole unofficially visited Tennessee at the end of July, and the Vols will try to get him for an official the fall.
Cole ranks as the No. 56 prospect in the 2024 class, and the No. 6 linebacker. He is expected to announced his commitment on Sept. 10.
3. EDGE Danny Okoye
Danny Okoye is a name that has been popping up a lot more recently, and for good reason. Okoye ranks as the No. 152 prospect in the nation, and the No. 10 edge rusher. He also is the No. 1 player out of Oklahoma and attends NOAH Homeschool in Tulsa.
Tennessee has been one of the leaders for Okoye, and it seems to still be that way.
Okoye will officially visit Tennessee at the end of September, and he will likely announce his decision soon after. The 6-4 and 241-pounder tallied 43 tackles with 16 for loss and six sacks.
4. OL Jordan Seaton
You can never have enough offensive lineman. Four-star offensive lineman Jordan Seaton has had a busy recruitment, but the Vols are swinging. Tennessee wants to get him for an official visit this fall.
Seaton, out of IMG Academy, ranks as the No. 39 prospect nationally and the No. 1 interior offensive lineman. Seaton is from Washington D.C., and he ranks as the No. 6 prospect from that area.
Alabama is heavily involved in Seaton’s recruitment and seen as a favorite. He also officially visited Florida and South Carolina.
5. EDGE Kameryn Fountain
Probably the longest shot on this list, USC commitment Kameryn Fountain and Tennessee have had mutual interest. The Vols are trying to flip the edge rusher from Booker T. Washington High School in Atlanta, Ga.
Fountain ranks as the No. 98 prospect in the country and the No. 8 edge rusher. USC was the only school that received an official visit. The Vols need to get Fountain on campus this fall to have a chance at flipping his commitment.
