Bogle’s recruitment ‘may come down until the end, Tennessee has done a good job recruiting him’

Tennessee is in the mix for defensive standout Khris Bogle from Cardinal Gibbons High School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., in the 2019 recruiting class.

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound prospect is coached by Matt Dubuc.

Dubuc discussed Bogle’s recruitment with Vols Wire and says that his decision “may come down until the end, but Tennessee has done a good job recruiting him.”

Bogle would be an ideal fit for Jeremy Pruitt’s 3-4 defense playing on the end or as an outside backer.

Cardinal Gibbons runs a 4-3 defense, but Bogle has been moved around throughout the unit.

“We have moved him around a little more this spring,” Dubuc said. “He can be a 3-4 linebacker. I think he can be an outside backer and lineup on the line in a 3-4.”

Bogle is a former basketball player, turned football player and his body is still developing into the sport.

“He is a former basketball player and his lower body is developed, but his upper body hasn’t developed yet,” Dubuc said. “That’s why I say the weight is going to be easy to put on when he gets into a college program. Getting the upper body strength, he could play defensive end. He is too long to play in the middle.

“Khris is going to continue to grow. He is 220-pounds now and when it’s all said and done he will be a 245-pound kid by the time he leaves whatever school he ends up at.”

Bogle’s recruitment was steered more towards Florida State before Jimbo Fisher departed for Texas A&M. Fisher’s linebackers coach Bill Miller played a big part in Bogle’s recruitment and now Miller is coaching at Kansas.

“Khris more than likely would have ended up at Florida State if Jimbo Fisher would have stayed because Bill Miller was recruiting him,” Dubuc said. “Miller is now at Kansas and is too far away and a reach to land Bogle. Tennessee’s Charles Kelly has picked up where Miller left off and has recruited Bogle.”

If Tennessee does land Bogle, Pruitt will gain a player that gives his all daily.

“The one thing I can say about Khris, that you cannot say about every kid, is that he really practices hard every day,” said Dubuc. “I think he is a Sunday player, no question. Once his upper body catches up with his lower body, he is going to make a lot of money playing this game. He is very athletic and does a lot of good things.”
