Tennessee secures a Top 5 class on National Signing Day. Read here for more information and to hear from the Vols' signees.
The Vols first signee of the day was Todd Kelly, Jr, son of former Vol Todd Kelly, Sr. The last two players to commit to UT on Wednesday were the younger brothers of VFL Eric Berry.
Butch Jones calls them legacy players.
In between them are sixteen other young men that Jones believes will help UT Rise to the Top, to get the program back where it's supposed to be.
Between early enrollees and Wednesday's signees, the Vols have added 32 players.
We expect to hear from Coach Jones later today on his successful class. Keep checking back for updates, video, and pictures. In the meantime, check out our Signing Day page, and head over to UT's official website for more.
