JJ Peterson

Four-star linebacker

Hometown: Moultrie, Ga.

National Rank: 48

Analysis from's Ryan Callahan:

"Tennessee beat out Alabama, which was a long-time favorite largely because of Jeremy Pruitt's hiring at Tennessee. Pruitt was his primary recruiter at Alabama and also has a close relationship with Peterson's high school coach, Rush Propst. Pruitt worked on his staff at Hoover High School in Alabama and they have a close relationship so that played a big part in Tennessee landing him."
