Five-star offensive tackle Cade Mays has been committed to Tennessee since July of 2015, and he told 247Sports he isn’t considering any other schools and doesn’t plan to take any official visits.
Mays said he is “100 percent Tennessee, all Vol,” and he hasn’t thought of opening up his recruitment again since committing to them.
“I mean, I committed,” Mays said. “I gave them my word. They gave me their word. I’ve been all in ever since then.”
Mays’ father, Kevin, played on the offensive line for Tennessee. The younger Mays said he has a great relationship with Tennessee offensive line coach Walt Wells, and he also has a good relationship with receivers coach Kevin Beard.
The Volunteers struggled down the stretch last season despite being the favorite to win the SEC East, but Mays said he isn’t concerned with the future of the program. He is even attempting to recruit other top prospects to join him in Knoxville.
“I feel like it’s going to shock a lot of people,” Mays said. “Everybody thinks the 2017 class is the best class, but 2018’s something crazy.”
Mays is the No. 3 offensive tackle for the Class of 2018, and he is the No. 16 overall player for the class. He is also the No. 1 player from the state of Tennessee.
