The Tennessee football team is having an outstanding June when it comes to recruiting. Will Darrion Henry be the next player to commit?
Tennessee football is rolling. We tried to tell you that June was going to be a huge month for Jeremy Pruitt and company. So far, we’ve been right.
Can the Vols keep the momentum going as June comes to an end?
On Monday afternoon, four-star safety, Keshawn Lawrence committed to Tennessee. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder from Nashville, Tennessee picked the Vols over LSU, Miami (FL), Alabama, Clemson, and Georgia to name a few.
According to the 247Sports Composite rankings, Lawrence is rated as the 63rd highest-rated recruit in the nation, 3rd highest-rated safety in the class, and 2nd highest-rated recruit from Tennessee.
It can’t be understated how important landing Lawrence was. Anytime the Vols can put locks on the state is a good thing, especially when the prospect has this much talent.
Who’s next? Will the momentum continue to roll?
Four-star defensive tackle from Cincinnati, OH could be the next prospect from the 2020 class to commit. Darrion Henry is ranked as the 121st highest-rated recruit, 11th highest defensive tackle, and 2nd highest in Ohio.
The 6-foot-4, 279-pounder currently holds 11 crystal ball predictions, unfortunately, all to the Ohio State University. However, according to 247Sports, Tennessee, is “warm.”
Henry released a Top-6 back in April that included Cincinnati, LSU, Kentucky, Georiga, Tennessee, and Ohio State. If there is any team that needs more bodies on the defensive line, it’s the Vols.
Henry has the making of growing into a defensive tackle in Tennessee’s system and shows great speed off the ball. He also a handful for offensive linemen with his ability to shed blocks.
Tennessee isn’t going to hit on every single prospect they go after, and Ohio State are the leaders in the clubhouse for Henry. However, with the momentum the Vols have on the recruiting trail, nothing would surprise me.
