Jeremy Pruitt and the Tennessee staff are showing no signs of slowing down following a big recruiting weekend. The Vols offered two electric class of 2019 prospects, Mark-Antony Richards of Florida and Bobby Wolfe of Texas.

Richards accumulated more than 2,000 all-purpose years this season for Wellington in West Palm Beach, Florida, and is one of the most dynamic players in the class.

247Sports’ Composite ranking lists Richards as the No. 96 overall prospect in the country and the No. 8 athlete. His highlights are below, and it’s pretty easy to see why he’s ranked so highly. Whether at safety, corner or on offense, Richards’ speed is unmistakable. His hands are solid and he’s a playmaker regardless of where he lines up.

Pruitt and company’s second offer extended to Bobby Wolfe, who 247Sports’ Composite ranking has listed as a 3-star prospect and the No. 43 cornerback in the country.

Wolfe is physical and aggressive, two traits that Pruitt and defensive backs coach Terry Fair are huge fans of. Vol faithful should be fans of how Wolfe plays the ball in air down the field, especially when matched up against a taller receiver. It’s clear that he isn’t afraid of contact and doesn’t give up on plays, and that combination should prove useful to any team at the next level.
