Jeremy Pruitt details Jaylen McCollough

KNOXVILLE – The Early Signing Period has concluded and Jeremy Pruitt discussed each of UT’s signees.

Jaylen McCollough, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound safety from Hillgrove High School in Powder Springs, Ga., signed with Tennessee on the first day of the Early Signing Period.

“In the back end, Jaylen McCollough, he’s a young man that I’ve actually known since he was a ninth grader,” Pruitt said. “He came to a camp that I was coaching at and we actually offered him a scholarship between his eighth and ninth grade year.

“He’s a guy that played on varsity from ninth grade on, was a tailback and then moved to defensive back late in his career. He probably played a lot both ways, but is a guy that has played a lot of football and is a really good football player in a very tough league and we’re excited to have him.”
