Wilson is using what he has learned during his time in Mississippi, using his connections with high school coaches to help the Vols establish some recruiting ties of their own.
One of the state's top athletes Kaleb Eulls from Yazoo City has recently picked up an offer from the University of Tennessee.
InsideTennessee.com caught up with the stand out athlete to check out his interest in UT.
"Yes sir I have a lot of interest in Tennessee," Eulls said. "I'm reading a lot of brochures and checking out the University over the internet on their website."
Eulls, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound athlete who runs a 4.6 forty, plays both quarterback and defensive end for his high school team.
One thing that has impressed Eulls about Tennessee is the top recruiting class the new staff turned in last February after just two months on the job.
"I really like their coaches, they really know how to recruit," Eulls said. "I get hand written notes from the entire staff on a daily basis."
Eulls also has been impressed with Coach Wilson.
"He has been great," Eulls said. "Every time I talk to him he asks me how my parents are doing. He truly seems to care about me."
Eulls explained that how he feels around a coaching staff will be the determining factor on where he attends college at.
"It's all about where I feel the most comfortable at," Eulls said. "I really want to mesh well with the coaching staff of the school I choose."
Does the instate schools have an edge with Eulls?
"I don't mind leaving the state," Eulls said. "It all depends on where I feel at home at."
Does he have an early favorite or list of favorites?
"I'm keeping that information confidential," Eulls said. "Yes I have some favorites, but keeping those to myself right now."
