Pruitt has already raised the bar of the players he is recruiting Tennessee.
Tennessee is certainly hoping for a build similar to Georgia under two-year head coach Kirby Smart. He's not (staying through the championship game) because of the loyalty to Nick.
Plus, let's be clear: Pruitt had just landed the University of Tennessee's top job while he also embraced the task of preparing Alabama for an eventual, magical, final national championship run in charge of the Tide defense - his fifth title-winning stop-unit.
"To me, it's a little bit of a feeling of guilt", Pruitt said. So, it was an easy transition for them to continue to implement the same thing for the players.

American Electric Power Co., Inc.'s Average Earnings Estimate for the current quarter is $1, according to consensus of 6 analysts. It is positive, as 47 investors sold AEP shares while 241 reduced holdings. 34 funds opened positions while 101 raised stakes.
It was pretty clear there was a big difference between the teams on the field Monday night and the one that took the field in Knoxville this season.
Pruitt replaced Butch Jones at Tennessee on December 7 after an embarrassing and prolonged coaching search for the Volunteers, but he remained at Alabama to help through the national championship.
It's been a whirlwind month for Pruitt, who juggled recruiting for Tennessee and game-planning for the College Football Playoff after being named the Vols' 26th head coach on December 7.
"I'll be honest with you, I sympathize with Jeremy because I think he was in a worse situation because I did not have to deal with the signing day", said Smart before the championship game, "and the fact that he had to deal with the signing day while there, I wouldn't wish that". Now Alabama's former defensive coordinator, Pruitt experienced an unprecedented month for a college football coach. Two other of his former Colquitt County defensive teammates, Ja'Quain Barkley and Shawn Shamburger, now play for Tennessee. He will continue assembling his staff and, of course, recruiting with the February 7 Signing Day fast approaching.

I don't know, I don't know how I can answer you. "It's a very important difference of points, I was there before", Mourinho added. However, reports are now saying that they will face some competition from one of their most bitter rivals in the Premier League .
"And Tosh just kind of paused, and I said, 'Tosh, do you need me to leave the room?' So everybody kind of got a kick out of it, but we all recruit the same guys". These past three weeks surely had to help him grow as a coach, though.
Pruitt has certainly picked up similar championship tendencies.
