Three-star class of 2023 running back Will Stallings Jr. commits to Tennessee

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee football added another piece to its 2023 recruiting class in three-star running back Will Stallings Jr.

Stallings announced his commitment to the Vols on Sunday. He chose Tennessee over Arizona, Arizona State, Pittsburgh and others. Stallings said the coaching staff was a huge factor in choosing UT.

"Once I got to talk to coach [Jerry] Mack, coach [Josh] Heupel, it kind of finalized it," Stallings said.

The 247Sports composite rating lists Stallings as the 11th-best recruit in Nevada and the 91st running back prospect in the nation. Stallings described himself as a physical running back who isn't afraid of contact.

"Running back, there are a lot of things that get you excited," Stallings said. "I really love contact and laying the boom."

Stallings said he received an offer from Tennessee after he went to the Vols' first camp of the summer in early June. It didn't take him long after Tennessee offered him to make up his mind.

"After talking with my dad and my family, it only took three days for us to decide," Stalling said. "It was a quick decision for us."

The 6-foot, 222 running back attends Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, and also has some experience in safety.
