Tennessee Volunteers Recruiting: Vols Add Two New Commits

The Tennessee Volunteers added a pair of receivers on Saturday in Kameel Jackson and Johnathan Johnson, teammates from Blinn College in Texas.

Jonathan Johnson, if he graduates from Blinn, will be able to play for the Volunteers this fall. Johnson is 5’10” and 180 lbs.

Jackson has committed as a member of the 2014 Tennessee Volunteers recruiting class. The Texas native is 6’1″/208 lbs runs a 4.42 in the 40 yard dash.

If Jackson graduates on time in December he should be able to enroll early and take part in spring practice next year. Jackson originally enrolled at Oklahoma and saw playing time as a true freshmen. Jackson was then suspended indefinitely by head coach Bob Stoops and eventually transferred to Louisiana-Monroe, but left in order to raise his grades according to News OK 

With most of the Vols 2012 production at the receiver position heading to the NFL, the Vols are in desperate need of wide receiver depth. Last Saturday at the Orange & White game the Vols were severely limited in what they were able to put on the field at wide receiver.

Jackson becomes the third wide receiver to commit to the 2014 class, while Johnson will join Paul Harris, Ryan Jenkins, Marquez North and Josh Smith as members of the 2013 receiving class.
