With only about a month until National Signing Day, Butch Jones is trying to fill some of the missing pieces in the 2013 recruiting class, and one of those is at the tight end position.
According to Volquest.com, A.J. Branisel committed to Tennessee Wednesday morning. Branisel already committed to Jones when he was at Cincinnati.
Branisel told Volquest, "I've recently had a Tennessee offer that still stuck and then coach Jones called me and told me I still had the offer if I wanted to go there and it felt like today was the day I needed to commit to Tennessee and get it all over with because I knew I wanted to go to Tennessee since Butch Jones went there and it was just a matter of time before committing."
