They haven't even started their senior year of high school but Tennessee and Alabama recruits are already talking trash about the rivalry on Twitter.
Tennessee five-star defensive tackle commitment Kahlil McKenzie started the good-natured Twitter battle on Sunday by tweeting a picture of himself from Nike's The Opening, a camp for elite high school prospects. In the picture, McKenzie is winning a one-on-one battle with Alabama commit Richie Petitbon. McKenzie captions the picture, "Givin' those bama fans somethin to look forward to hahaha."
Alabama quarterback commit Blake Barnett replied to McKenzie, asking, "another ring?"
The Vol legacy commit responded right back telling Barnett as long as he was sacking him, Alabama wouldn't be getting any rings.
Crimson Tide offensive line commit Dallas Warmack, brother of former 'Bama lineman Chance Warmack, jumped in telling McKenzie he wouldn't be touching his quarterback.
They traded a couple more jokes and laughs before McKenzie seemingly ended the discussion by telling Twitter that Alabama fans are stuck in the past because "the future is orange."
You can view the Tweets below. McKenzie is rated the top class of 2015 high school prospect in the country by Scout.com. The 6-foot-4, 341 pound defensive tackle committed to Tennessee on July 10th and is the son of Oakland Raiders GM and former Vol Reggie McKenzie.
