Class of 2021 linebacker: Christopher Paul Jr.

KNOXVILLE — Christopher Paul Jr. is a 2021 linebacker from Crisp County High School in Cordele, Ga.

Paul Jr. discussed his recruitment with Vols Wire.

“I am suppose to have a workout coming up this summer,” he said regarding Tennessee. “To me Coach (Jeremy) Pruitt is one of the best coaches in the SEC. His coaching staff is great as well. They keep the players on track grade-wise and football-wise. Coach Pruitt also teaches you that football is more than just a game.”

Paul Jr. is not only gaining interest from Tennessee, but also Akron and newly hired assistant Shelton Felton.

Felton served as a Quality Control Analyst for Pruitt in 2018. Felton was elevated to fill in on the recruiting trail in December, replacing offensive coordinator Tyson Helton after he left to become Western Kentucky’s head coach.

Felton now serves as inside linebackers coach at Akron, and on Friday, the former UT analyst wasted no time in offering Paul Jr. a scholarship.
