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.

The Serbian could win the match if his arm injury, which has kept him off the court since Wimbledon, doesn't give him problems. The 12-time major victor said he was doing everything possible to be ready in time for the Australian.

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.

"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.
