Leave it to Jeremy Pruitt’s Tennessee coaching staff to leave no stone unturned when it comes to finding players that fit the scheme and culture they are trying to build on Rocky Top.

According to SDS’s Tennessee insider Dan Harralson, found on Twitter @danharrlson, the Vols have added another late addition to the incoming 2018 recruiting class in Alabama native Jarious Abercrombie. He is expected to arrive on campus next week.

You may recall the current Volunteer staff made headlines around the recruiting world last winter when they discovered a completely unknown receiver out of Georgia named Jordan Young. Soon after discovering Young, Tennessee got him on campus and offered him a scholarship. Immediately after that, the recruiting world caught on and Young was elevated to four-star status just as he commit to the Vols.

After being discovered, Young quickly found the attention of Ohio State and Florida State. He later signed with FSU but Young would have likely never landed any FBS offers had Tennessee not found him first.

The Tennessee staff found more success with similarly less heralded prospects such as defensive back Trevon Flowers, defensive lineman Kurott Garland (Young’s high school teammate), receiver Cedric Tillman, and junior college defensive back Kenneth George Jr. All those players picked Tennessee after being discovered by the Vols and are expected to be members of the 2018 recruiting class.

Now it appears Pruitt and company may have found their next gem in Birmingham native Jarious Abercrombie. The Wenonah High School product measures in at 6-foot-6, 320-pounds and projects as an offensive lineman for the Vols. Considering the lack of “big guys” on Tennessee’s roster as Pruitt would describe it, Abercrombie helps fill a much-needed role for the program.
