Wes Rucker is the senior writer for 247Sports’ Tennessee site, govols247.com, which is a collaborative effort from 247Sports and the Knoxville News-Sentinel. He graduated from the University of Tennessee in 2004 and covered the Vols for the Daily Beacon while in school. Prior to writing for 247Sports, Rucker was hired out of college by the Chattanooga Times Free Press where he served as a general assignment sports and outdoors reporter for a few months before moving to the UT-Chattanooga sports beat. He returned to Knoxville several years later as the UT sports beat writer. He joined 247Sports in January of 2011 where he continues to cover the current Vols' sports and the recruiting process. With a front-row seat to the 2013 football team, as well as having covered the program amid the challenges and changes of the last five years, Rucker is able to provide expert analysis of the current football team (Team 117), the current coaching staff, and what Vols fans in Birmingham can look forward to seeing on and off the field on Rocky Top.
