There was some significant movement among the state of Tennessee and their top prospects in the 2024 class in the updated rankings. Skill players on both sides of the ball dominate the talent pool in the Volunteer State – especially at the top.
As expected, SEC programs are heavily involved with the best in Tennessee for the 2024 recruiting cycle. However, top programs from other conferences are also involved and one Big Ten program was able to land a commitment from one of the state’s top defenders recently.
We take a look at where things stand with the cream of the crop in the state as we inch closer to fall practice starting and high school games being played.
– Edwin Spillman now claims the No. 1 spot in the state and No. 72 overall in the 2023 class. The four-star just camped at Tennessee, where he’s been quite a few times already as his brother, Nate Spillman, is committed to the Vols in the 2023 class. Those facts make it easy to give Tennessee the slight edge among other programs that are in pursuit. However, the younger Spillman has plenty of other top tier programs making a push as he’s also made recent trips to Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Louisville.
– Boo Carter has been impressive throughout the spring and summer, jumping up 19 spots in the national rankings and now sitting at No. 75 overall. Like Spillman, Carter also camped at Tennessee before the dead period. He’s also taken trips to Nebraska, Michigan State, and Michigan throughout the spring and summer. Most schools like him at defensive back while others like him on offense as a versatile running back.
