Success always helps when it comes to recruiting, and Tennessee's recent run has been no exception.

"A lot of the guys we've spoken with have been impressed with Tennessee's fast start," said GoVols247's Ryan Callahan. "No doubt, that's made a difference."

On top of that, Georgia is a key recruiting state for the Vols, with many battles over top recruits coming down to Tennessee and the Bulldogs.

"That's one of the added benefits of that game," said Callahan, "to get another Tennessee win over Georgia in those guys' minds certainly didn't hurt."
