The Tennessee Volunteers have been recruiting like a national power as of late, boasting the nation's No. 12 recruiting class in 2023 and the No. 6 class early in the 2024 cycle.

And there's no sign of a slow down.

In fact, Tennessee is set to host a massive collection of visitors this weekend.

One of the headliners of that group is unquestionably Lake Cormorant High School (Mississippi) five-star defensive lineman Kamarion Franklin, who is making a return trip to Knoxville:

The 6-foot-4.5, 260-pound class of 2024 defensive lineman is rated a five-star prospect, the nation's No. 22 overall recruit and the No. 3 defensive lineman.

For Franklin, the return trip is about believing the Volunteers are on the right path.

"I think they have something going and it’s really special," he said. "They’re looking really good." 

It's far too early to speculate where Franklin will end up, but clearly Tennessee has his full attention.
