Coming next week starting Feb. 24–Quarterback Week! We take a look at the top 2015 signal caller targets for SEC schools, talk to them about what’s on their minds … and where they might end up.

You have to wonder if Butch Jones and his staff ever gets any sleep. It just closed out a monumental 2014 signing class, but already has huge momentum with the 2015 class and even can boast the largest 2016 class so far.

It does make you wonder when they sleep.

The 2015 Vols class is already rated No. 5 in the nation and has its eyes on a load of talent to come. Preston Williams is a national top 100 prospect at wide receiver, and he stands 6-foot-5. And the talent on both sides of the line is impressive. It’s a great group.

“The fan base is amazing and the rich tradition too,” Vols DE commitment Andrew Butcher told Saturday Down South. “I believe that we are back on the rise. Butch Jones is just a really good person and has surrounded himself with a great coaching staff.”

Williams agreed.

“I would like to rebuild that program and do big things my freshman year,” Williams told SDS. “I want to get us a championship.”
