New Tennessee Volunteers head coach Jeremy Pruitt hasn't even been on the job for a week, but he is already making major moves on the recruiting trail. Here are all the latest recruiting news & rumors that you need to know:
Could Vols flip four-star Bama commit?
Four-star defensive end Jordan Davis (Memphis, TN) appeared to re-affirm his commitment to Alabama on Friday after Pruitt left for Tennessee, tweeting out "Commitment 1,000,000,000 #RollTide."
However, Davis - who plans to sign and enroll early - has since deleted that tweet. Does that mean Pruitt is working to bring him with him to Knoxville? At any rate, it certainly seems like Davis is considering it.
The 6-foot-5, 238-pounder is ranked as the No. 5 weak-side defensive end and No. 89 overall prospect in the country, according to the 247sports Composite.
Tennessee to host Mississippi State commit
The Vols will host four-star Mississippi State commit Marcus Murphy (West Point, MS) next weekend after Tennessee's coaching staff visited him on Friday, he told 247sports. However, the chances of the Vols flipping him are very small.
"When I get back from the Miss.-Ala. game I am going to Tennessee for a visit," said Murphy. "But I am just going to visit and there's no worries for Mississippi State."
The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder is ranked as the No. 29 ATH and No. 437 overall prospect in the country.

Three-star RB "definitely interested" in Vols after visit
Three-star running back Jeremy Banks (Cordova, TN) received an offer from Tennessee over the weekend from Pruitt's staff and said he's "definitely interested" in the Vols.
“They’d been telling me they were going to give me an offer. They just had to get a new coach in place, get him to watch me,” said Banks. “I talked to Coach Pruitt (on Saturday), and he offered me a scholarship.”
“That’s a great school and everything. That’s all I can say because I’m not originally from Tennessee. I’m from Mississippi. Tennessee has a good program, and I like the things that Coach Pruitt is trying to come in and do, the things that he is telling me. Tennessee is a great program. I’m definitely interested in them, and we’ve just got to see where things go when I visit.”
Banks has not decided if he'll sign during the early signing period (Dec. 20-22) or on National Signing Day.
The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder is ranked as the No. 23 running back and No. 534 overall prospect in the country.Back to the Tennessee Volunteers Newsfeed
