The level of high school football talent improves consistently across the State of Tennessee from year to year.

Hoping to continue bringing those players to Knoxville is coach Derek Dooley and Tennessee.

Being the first to get their foot in the door with many prospects has proven to be helpful to the Volunteers and two more Memphis-based standouts from the Class of 2013 are hearing from Tennessee already.

Jason Carr and Donald Gray both have scholarship offers from the Vols and appear to be high on the wish list of in-state targets.

Carr is a raw defensive end for the Spartans. His upside is exponential as he continues to learn about football while also filling in his 6-foot-6, 250-pound body.

Which side of the ball Gray winds up on at the next level remains to be seen. At 5-9, 150 he will likely play either cornerback or slot receiver to utilize his aggressiveness and quick-twitch ability.

The pair are trying to get White Station another TSSAA Class 6A state championship after the Spartans took home the title in 2009.

White Station (8-4) eliminated Brighton 17-0 last Friday. It advanced to face Whitehaven in a 6A semifinal this week.
