The Tennessee Volunteers extended a scholarship offer to 2014 kicker Aaron Medley on Tuesday.

It took less than 24 hours for Medley to commit to the Vols.

 

Medley is from Lewisburg, TN (Marshall County) and had been offered a scholarship by three schools; Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Tennessee.

The Aggies offered on May 20. The Sooners were the first team to offer, on May 7.

Rivals rates Medley as a three-star recruit.

The Tennessee native attempted only six field goals last season, making three. His longest of the season was a 50 yarder. Medley also hit 27 of 30 extra point attempts.

Medley also punts for Marshall County, averaging 40.3 yards a punts last season.

The Vols are apparently trying to load up on special teams. Just last week Wyoming Punter Tim Gleeson announced he would be enrolling at Tennessee this fall. Due to NCAA transfer rules he will have to sit out  a season.

Give that scenario I’d imagine that Medley is being primarily recruited as a kicker for the Vols, and not as a punter.
