Signing Day 2013: With 3 known visitors in town and Chongo Kondolo off board, how will Tennessee close?

chongo-kondolo-247.JPGKNOXVILLE, Tennessee Tennessee had planned to bring up to seven players for official visits this weekend.

Instead, it should be a relatively quiet weekend (unless there are secret visitors that have eluded the outstanding Internet sleuths) in Knoxville. Defensive linemen E.J. Levenberry and Malik Brown and receiver Tyler Boyd are expected to be here, along with some juniors the Vols are targeting in 2014.

This will probably be my last update until next week, and then I’ll make some final predictions. I think that aside from Vonn Bell and Carl Lawson, we should have a much better idea of what Tennessee’s final class will look like — unless, of course, there are some fall-back options or secret recruits that are added at the last moment.

Signing Day 2013: Updated odds for all of Tennessee’s targets

jaylen-miller-247.jpgKNOXVILLE, Tennessee — We made some minor changes to the list, tweaking a few percentages slightly. I also added four-star WR Shelton Richardson, a West Virginia commitment who I had forgotten to include on the first installment.

The Chongo Kondolo situation remains unclear. JC Shurburtt tweeted Monday that the juco offensive lineman had committed to the Vols, but apparently no one has been able to reach him to confirm that. Because of that, I don’t believe he has been added to the commitment list on either 247 or Rivals.

Defensive end Joe Sanders will soon be off the commitment list, as he is likely bound for juco or prep school. So, if Kondolo is actually in the fold, Tennessee has 17 commitments (including five early enrollees).

The assumption had long been that Tennessee coaches would take the maximum they could sign (which is 27, including two counted back to 2012). That seems virtually impossible to happen now. Even if there are many fallback options waiting in the wings — and there may be — it’s hard to envision a scenario in which the Vols could get to 27. But we shall see. There’s still a week until National Signing Day.
