Tennessee fans embarrass themselves following tweet regarding Vols' interest in elite high school prospect
If you ever find yourself with your phone in your hands about to tweet something negative at a recruit, stop, reconsider your life, and delete that tweet.
A few Tennessee fans forgot that simple rule recently, when Tennessee’s 247Sports site tweeted that the school was giving 3-star 2020 OC Cooper Mays a lot of attention.
Mays, the younger brother of 2018 5-star OL Cade Mays, received a lot of negative feedback from the tweet. Cade, obviously, went to Georgia, spurning the school that his father played at under Phillip Fulmer:

Per the 247Sports composite, Cooper Mays is the No. 5 center in the class of 2020 and the No. 20 overall recruit from the state of Tennessee.
The responses to the tweet were not a good look for Vol Nation, though it’s important to note that this seemingly is only a small portion of the fanbase:

If he’s anything like his brother we don’t want him

Pretty sure his brother burned that legacy line

Mays is sure to have plenty of big-name schools that would love to have him, so we’ll see if this negative reaction from the Vols influences his decision. Perhaps he’ll join his brother at Georgia instead — Kirby Smart would be excited to have another Mays along the offensive line.
