Vols plotting flip of No. 7 OT

The recruitment of Steven Moss won't cease even after the FOX Sports NEXT four-star verbally committed to Virginia this weekend.

Tennessee hopes to stay in the hunt and get Fredericksburg, Va., standout back to Knoxville to get him to flip from the Cavaliers.

Moss, who plans to play on both sides of the ball this fall at Chancellor (Va.) High School, has made the rounds with seeing college campuses having checked out Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, Ohio State, South Carolina and Virginia.

Moss said the up-tempo scheme the Vols implemented under coach Butch Jones and coordinator Mike Bajakian fits Moss perfectly.

Offensive line coach Don Mahoney has a reputation of molding athletic teenagers into pro-ready blockers and the Vols believe they could help the 6-foot-5, 290-pounder reach his goals.

Have a look at what the Virginia pledge said about his recent trip to Knoxville in the video below (note that the interview took place before his declaration):
