Jeremy Pruitt’s Tennessee program continues to win big on the recruiting trail.
Even with no offensive coordinator presently on staff, following Tyson Helton’s decision to take the head coaching position at Western Kentucky, Tennessee just reached into Georgia and landed a commitment from one of the highest-rated quarterback prospects in the nation from Marietta, Ga., native Harrison Bailey.
The 2020 prospect announced his commitment to Tennessee Thursday during a ceremony at his Marietta High School. While there has been speculation that Bailey could re-classify to become a member of the 2019 recruiting cycle, the Georgia native shot down those rumors leading up to his commitment.
The 6-foot-4, 217-pound Marietta native chose the Vols over finalist Michigan. The 2020 U.S. Army All-American also holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Florida State, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M among many others.
Bailey plans on enrolling early in Knoxville following the conclusion of his senior season of high school, which will give him an excellent opportunity to learn the offensive playbook heading into the 2020 SEC football season.
According to 247Sports Composite Rankings, Bailey is the No. 3 pro-style QB prospect in the nation and a top 60 overall recruit for the 2020 recruiting cycle. He is currently the highest-rated 2020 pro-style passer to be committed to a school and Tennessee’s highest-rated commit for the 2020 recruiting cycle.
Interestingly enough, he is a teammate of Tennessee 2019 receiver commit, Ramel Keyton.
