The recruiting game appears to be starting earlier with each passing season in terms of how young football players are when college coaches are offering them a chance to play at their respective universities.

In the Class of 2014, a select few names stick out as athletes that have been on the radar for numerous months already. One of those is Tennessee cornerback target Jalen Tabor.

Tabor, who picked up his first scholarship offer during the spring of his freshman year, now boasts over 20 offers from some of the premier names in college football.

The Washington, D.C., product is one of many rangy cornerbacks the Volunteers are in pursuit of already, joining the likes of Marlon Humphrey, Nick Ruffin and Deion Singleton.

At 6-foot-1, 175 pounds, he has the length and stature on the perimeter that may remind some Big Orange fans of a young Brent Vinson. Tabor's third trip down to Knoxville took place last week as he continues to build a relationship with coach Derek Dooley, defensive coordinator Sal Sunseri and cornerbacks coach Derrick Ansley.
