Vols made Darrion Henry’s top six. However, the four-star defensive tackle committed to play for Ohio State on Saturday night.
Last week we wrote a post about Darrion Henry being the next prospect from the 2020 recruiting class to commit to the Vols. Since then, the Vols have picked up two commits, and neither had the last name of Henry.
Four-star defensive tackle, Darrion Henry committed to the Ohio State University late Saturday afternoon. Tennessee made Henry’s top six and being from Ohio, Ohio State led the way, but there was still a chance. Especially with all the momentum the Vols had.
Being from Ohio, it appears that Henry will more than likely shut down his recruitment. The four-star is ranked No.121 in the nation, 11th highest defensive tackle, and the second highest-rated players from Ohio.
Henry would have been a massive get for the Vols. Jeremy Pruitt and crew have done a fantastic job recruiting the secondary. Actually, just recruiting in general. However, you can always use help on the offensive and defensive lines.
The 6-foot-4, 279 pounder would have been a force on the defensive line, especially with his quickness off the ball and his ability to use his hands.
Tennessee is still rolling in recruiting and is hot with a few more players.
After the commitments from safety Keshawn Lawrence and running back Tee Hodge, the Vols are still warm on many players and expect to continue their hot June.
According to 247Sports, Tennessee has offered 444 players. One of the offers that are pending is one to the dual-threat quarterback, Haynes King. We’ve been mentioning it for a while, but an announcement from Haynes King should be on the docket any minute.
There are other players that could be making their college decision sooner rather than later. That decision could be to play for the Tennessee football Volunteers.
