BUFORD, Ga. — Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs made his way to his home state last weekend and spoke with some of the South's top college football prospects.
The rising senior leader of the Volunteers figures to play a vital role in an attempt to make a championship run. However, what will coach Butch Jones and staff do at quarterback after Dobbs graduates?
Some quarterbacks hearing from Vols coaches were on display at Buford High School on Sunday.
Hockman visited Knoxville for a junior day on March 5 and walked away with Tennessee as one of his top four schools. Some close to his recruitment feel the left-hander ultimately winds up at North Carolina, but he's showing increased interest in the Volunteers.
Jones surprised some by naming Tennessee is overall leader Sunday, but the right-hander had already listed the Big Orange as one of his top schools. Only a sophomore, the upside is apparent with Jones and Tennessee offensive coordinator Mike DeBord and quality control coach Nick Sheridan have already made strides with Jones' recruitment.
Lawrence entered the limelight at an unusually early age as Scout dubbed him a five-star prospect the summer prior to his sophomore season. Multiple offers from Power 5 programs made their way to the former Fall Branch, Tennessee, resident. Can Lawrence handle the attention? If he can, then the GHSA state champion has a greater chance of turning his potential into production.
