Who could be next Volunteer tailback?

10/2/2012

With Derrick Henry (Yulee, Fla./Yulee) committed to Alabama, Tennessee has set its sights on a trio of other tailback prospects. Here are the top running back targets on the Vols' board:

Derrick Green (Richmond, Va./Hermitage) -- One could easily argue that Green was as high or higher on Tennessee's board than Henry since there are questions about what position Henry will play in college. Many think Green is also a better natural runner. Clearly, Green is priority No. 1 for the Vols' 2013 class.

Tarean Folston (Cocoa, Fla./Cocoa) -- Folston has been hard to read but has given indications he's willing to leave the state of Florida. That's good news for the Vols. Virginia Tech, however, looks like it could be tough to beat.

A.J. Turman (Orlando, Fla./Boone) -- Turman seems like the most likely running back on Tennessee's board to end up in orange. Turman spoke glowingly about his visit to Knoxville last month and is planning a return trip to Tennessee's campus.
