Elite OL Shor 'A Huge Priority' For Vols After Offer is Re-Affirmed

Publish date:

Dayne Shor held an offer from Tennessee's previous staff, and it did not take long for him to hear from Josh Heupel's staff. Shor is one of the most highly sought-after prospects in the country regardless of position, and his offer to Tennessee was re-affirmed after a conversation with the Volunteers offensive line coach, Glen Elarbee.

"I talked to Coach Elarbee, and he really liked how aggressive I am, how fast I am off the ball, and whatnot," Shor told VR2 on SI.

Elarbee re-affirmed the offer and made it clear to Shor he is a priority for the Vols moving forward. "I felt great after the conversation," he said. "He told me I was a huge priority for them."

Tennessee will have their work cut out in Shor's recruiting as he said other teams such as "Alabama, USC, Oregon, and Texas A&M are showing me the most love right now."

"This is in no particular order," Shor added.

As Shor continues to work through his recruitment, there is no timeframe for when a decision might come, although he knows what he is looking for in a school.

 "I think the relationships, academics, and the campus life are the biggest factors in my recruitment," he said.

The 6'6, 295 pounds offensive tackle from King's Ridge Academy in Alpharetta (Ga.) holds over 33 offers from Division 1 schools.
