The Tennessee Volunteers may not be winning many games on the field, but they’re winning the recruiting battle off the field.
Three-star defensive end Cory Thomas became the Volunteers’ 31st 2014 commitment on Tuesday when he committed after practice.

Butch Jones previously said he planned to sign 30 players in this class, but it’s still very early and there’s no telling what will transpire in the coming months.
As far as Thomas goes, he’s a 6’6″/270 lb defensive end from McCalla, AL (McAdory).
Defensive end has been a position of concern for the Vols this season. They’ve been unable to consistently pressure opposing quarterbacks or stop the run effectively.
Thomas should help out immediately if given the opportunity to play early.
The Alabama native holds offers from Florida, Clemson, Florida State, Alabama, Miami and Nebraska, as well as several others.
Thomas was initially offered by the Vols on May 14th and took an unofficial visit to Knoxville on June 10.
