Be informed about the future of Big Orange football with a membership to Scout's InsideTennessee. Check out the latest on one of the elite defensive tackles in the nation.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — If the Tennessee defenses of the future are going to be dominant, they'll need a dominant presence in the middle.

If Shy Tuttle becomes the player both recruiting analysts and the coaching staff on Rocky Top expect him to be...look out.

The 6-foot-2, 312-pounder ranks by Scout as the No. 83 player in the 2015 class and No. 9 defensive tackle. The North Davidson (N.C.) Senior High School standout and four-star prospect is a major cog in Tennessee's recruiting class that currently ranks No. 5 nationally.

The Under Armour All-American is getting one of his young life's greatest challenges competing against some of the country's best blockers. See what Tuttle said about that experience, bonding with other future Volunteers and more:
