Tennessee added two more early additions to new head coach Jeremy Pruitt’s first recruiting class on Wednesday.

The Vols earned commitments from running back Jeremy Banks and offensive lineman Jerome Carvin, both of whom announced their decisions within minutes from each other and intend to sign their respective letters of intent as part of the early signing period.

Carvin, a four-star lineman, ranks as the No. 25 offensive tackle and No. 367 overall prospect for the 2018 national recruiting cycle, according to the 247Sports Composite.

Banks rates as a four-star prospect and ranks as the No. 16 running back for the 2018 national recruiting cycle, according to Rivals.

Pruitt has now earned four commitments since taking over as head coach earlier this month, including four-star wide receiver Alontae Taylor — who decommitted from the Vols in November before reaffirming his commitment last week — and three-star defensive tackle Kingston Harris.

Banks and Carvin will also join three-star offensive tackle Tanner Antonutti, offensive guard Ollie Lane and kicker Paxton Brooks as early signees for Tennessee during Wednesday’s early signing period.
