BEAVERTON, Ore. — A third time could be the charm.
Tennessee welcomed Donnie Corley to its campus for a junior day earlier this year and then an Orange Carpet Day event in late June. The Great Lakes State's best wide receiver in the 2016 cycle told InsideTennessee that a second Orange Carpet Day in Knoxville is next on the agenda.
After gathering information and enjoying a "chill day" with the staff the previous two trips, the third time south from Detroit figures to include academic research.
The 6-foot-2, 182-pounder ran a laser-timed 4.67 at The Opening last week. He also showed flashes of having game speed superior to his testing speed.
Who is going to get that talent into their college uniform? The pass-catcher delayed his declaration date and doesn't have another set.
"I actually don't even know now," said Corley, whose mother's family lives in Nashville.
Looking to help the Motor City talent make a sound decision is none other than Tennessee quarterback commit Jarrett Guarantano, who stayed on Corley early at The Opening. The wideout finds Guarantano's talent attractive and helps the Vols' chances of signing him.
"You've got to have a quarterback to get you the ball," Corley said.
