Ty Simpson’s departure from Volquest is a blow to the Volquest family
The news of Ty Simpson’s departure from Volquest is heartbreaking. The star quarterback was excited to play in Tennessee’s offense under new head coach Josh Heupel. If Pruitt had remained head coach, he would be a top priority for the Vols. Even if he signs with Alabama or Clemson, Tennessee will continue to recruit him. Tennessee can always offer him a transfer portal, too.
The loss of Simpson to Tennessee will be felt by the Volquest family. A five-star recruit, Simpson was committed to Tennessee after his sophomore season. He led the team with 76 tackles, including ten tackles for loss. But it’s not the end of the Volquest family. Ty Simpson is a great asset for Volquest and the state’s football program, but he’ll miss playing in college. Despite this, the next generation of Volquest quarterbacks will be able to carry the torch.
Jay Hardy is one of the nation’s top football prospects
In addition to Tennessee, Hardy has drawn interest from Georgia, Auburn, and Florida. He recently visited Volquest Tennessee for the Volunteers’ 41-21 win over South Carolina. Hardy held more than 30 college offers. Tennessee’s Jeremy Pruitt has struck a good rapport with the 6-foot-4, 295-pound lineman. The Volunteers are one of the top three schools in Tennessee’s recruiting class, and Hardy has already visited Ohio State, Georgia, and Florida.
While the Volquest volleyball team is not in the CFP conversation yet, the program is gaining reputation in the recruiting world. Coach Jay Hardy spoke with the recruiting team about his success at Volquest. Recruiting has become an extremely competitive sport at the college level, and Volquest is ready to compete with the best. Volquest coaches offer tips to volleyball recruits who are interested in college volleyball.
Tennessee is in the mix for several other top recruits
In the past few days, Georgia standout DJ Jefferson, a six-foot-five, 190-pound safety, has visited Tennessee. After de-committing from Tulsa last month, he has received multiple offers from Tennessee, Wake Forest, and Washington State. The three-star prospect is the 175th-ranked player in the 2022 class. Other offers have come from Creighton and Depaul, and several other top programs.
Despite the star power of the current recruiting class, there’s still room for things to change. In a single day, players can de-commit from a school and choose another. That means Tennessee may lose some of its current class, and better players could sneak up on it before June. In addition, other programs could snag better players. Therefore, it is difficult to predict which players will sign with Tennessee.
Although Tennessee already has a commitment from quarterback Nico Iamaleava and is leading the AP rankings, the Volunteers are in the mix for several other top recruits. If everything goes according to plan, Tennessee could land three five-star players in the 2023 class. Mitchell has more than 30 scholarship offers, including ones from Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Ohio State. The top players with the most offers will likely be drafted by the SEC.
Volquest’s recruiting pitch
The Volquest volleyball team hasn’t yet reached the College Football Playoff (CFP), but it is building a reputation for attracting elite college players. With 23 scholarship offers, Jadyn Davis has trained with top coaches from across the country. She recently won the overall MVP award at a loaded regional tournament. While Volquest’s recruiting pitch may not be as compelling as that of some other programs, it certainly has its advantages.
