Four-star offensive line prospect Cooper Mays didn’t have to go far, coming from Knoxville Catholic High School to suit up where his father Kevin played in the 1990s.
Mays was a longtime commit, and one of the headliner’s in Tennessee’s 2020 class.
Baltimore, Maryland product Dominic Bailey moved in on Sunday as well, just days after participating in the Under Armour All America Game. Listed as the No. 20 defensive tackle in the country per the 247 Sports Composite, Bailey stands at 6-foot-3, 293 pounds as he joins an already experience defensive line unit that returns most of the production from 2019.
Finally, quarterback Jimmy Holiday out of Madison, Mississippi was the third player to move in on Sunday. A former TCU commit, Holiday has blazing speed and reportedly is headed to Tennessee as a quarterback, although he is listed as an athlete on the 247 Sports Composite.
The fourth and final early enrollee is not yet on campus, but certainly draws the most excitement from Tennessee fans. Former Marietta High School quarterback Harrison Bailey is the one of the gems of this recruiting class, as the No. 4 pro-style quarterback in the country.
Bailey led his talent-rich Marietta team to a state championship in Georgia in 2019, and is delayed in getting to campus because of his participation in the All-American Bowl on Saturday, although he sat out with an injury.
These four freshmen from the 2020 class will join Tennessee for spring practice, as the Vols officially head into the offseason with momentum, picking up their sixth straight win over Indiana in the Gator Bowl to get to 8-5 in Jeremy Pruitt’s first season.
