Jeremy Pruitt comments on Tennessee's addition of OL transfer Cade Mays
Could Cade Mays suit up and play for Tennessee in 2020?
That’s yet to be decided. But either way, Vols head coach Jeremy Pruitt appears to be eager about the addition of Mays to his team’s offensive line at some point in the future.
“We are excited to welcome Cade to the University of Tennessee,” Pruitt said in a press release. “Cade is a great fit because of his familiarity with Tennessee and Knoxville. He will get to play with his brother, Cooper, at the school where his dad, Kevin, played.
“As a guy with multiple years of starting experience on the offensive line in the SEC, Cade is a tremendous addition to our program. He’s tough and he’s powerful, and he is a versatile player who can line up anywhere on the offensive line. He will have an impact on the field, and he will also have a positive effect on our team and in the offensive line room with his leadership ability.”
Mays transferred from Georgia to Tennessee, with the Vols making it official with an announcement on Twitter on Thursday. A member of the 2018 recruiting class, he was once committed to Tennessee before flipping to Georgia following the firing of former Vols head coach Butch Jones.
Now, Mays decided to leave Georgia after former Bulldogs offensive line coach Sam Pittman departed to become the head coach at Arkansas.
