As well as any football coach may be at recruiting elite prospects, there is no substitute for a fellow prospect’s pitch. Tennessee commit Jarrett Guarantano, the nation’s No. 1 ranked dual-threat quarterback prospect, is currently doing his part to recruit fellow Under Armour All-American Landon Dickerson to Rocky Top.
A four-star prospect and the No. 2 overall prospect from North Carolina according to 247Sports, Dickerson is one of the top remaining targets on the Vols 2016 recruiting board. The offensive lineman is expected to pick between finalists Tennessee, Florida State, Auburn, Alabama, Florida and Virginia Tech.
The Under Armour All-American game, which annually hosts a number of the most elite prospects in high school football, is scheduled to be played Jan. 2. Tennessee cornerback prospect Marquill Osborne is also in attendance for the national showcase game.
