Tennessee Vols in an all-out three-team battle for one of the nation’s top 2025 recruits.

The Tennessee Vols are actively competing for the coveted No. 2 player in the 2025 recruiting class, and though it’s still early in the recruitment process, it seems to be shaping up as a three-team contest.

According to On3’s Chad Simmons, Clemson, Georgia, and Tennessee are currently at the forefront, “setting the pace” in the pursuit of 2025 five-star offensive lineman David Sanders Jr. Simmons reported on several recruiting battles, highlighting that Clemson is a formidable contender, with Sanders scheduling an official visit to Death Valley in early June. Georgia is another strong contender, while Tennessee is set to host Sanders for an early spring visit, benefiting from a positive connection with quarterback commit George MacIntyre. Although these three programs lead the race, other schools are still in contention.

Hailing from Charlotte, NC, Sanders stands at 6-foot-6 and weighs 270 lbs. He holds the top spot as the nation’s No. 1 offensive tackle and is ranked as the No. 2 overall player in the 2025 class.

The competition for Sanders is expected to be fierce, as he is a highly sought-after player by programs nationwide, including Ohio State, which is actively recruiting him. Tennessee holds a strategic advantage with the commitment of five-star quarterback George MacIntyre, who shares a strong rapport with Sanders. VolQuest’s Brent Hubbs emphasized MacIntyre’s commitment to being present whenever Sanders visits Knoxville.

While the recruiting battle is still in its early stages, Tennessee appears to have a solid chance among the contenders to secure the commitment of the prized five-star offensive lineman.
