Is Tennessee Football on the verge of landing a 5-star DL? Experts weigh in on the Vols’ 2024 recruiting class.
Tennessee Football has been on the rise in recent years, and it looks like the Vols are about to land a major recruit. 5-star DL prospect Kamarion Franklin is predicted to commit to Tennessee, and fans are eagerly anticipating his arrival.
Here’s what experts have to say about Franklin’s potential impact on the Vols’ 2024 recruiting class…
Kamarion Franklin could be the key to unlocking Tennessee Football’s defensive potential in 2024.
According to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine:
"“The Volunteers are leading for Franklin’s commitment at 76.8%. Tennessee’s odds for the 6-foot-5, 260-pound recruit rose greatly following an expert prediction from On3’s Sam Spiegelman.”"
Furthermore, On3 Sports had this to say about Kamarion Franklin:
"“Kamarion Franklin has been a long-time target for (defensive line coach) Rodney Garner and Tennessee dating back to last summer,” Matt Ray of Volquest said. “Franklin’s combination of size, speed and raw athleticism fits the mold of what Tennessee covets along the defensive front. After a multi-day unofficial visit in April, centered around the annual Orange and White game, it felt like the Vols seized the momentum in this recruitment. June official visits will play a pivotal role in Tennessee staying in a prime position, ahead of a potential late summer decision.”"
Kamarion Franklin is a total beast on the football field. He had an insane junior season at Lake Cormorant High School in Mississippi, racking up 73 tackles, 22 tackles for loss, and a school-record 17 sacks. He also had a ton of quarterback pressures and hits. Basically, he was unstoppable. Franklin got a bunch of awards for his performance, including first-team all-metro. And get this—he also plays basketball for Lake Cormorant, where he’s pretty solid. He’s averaging around 6.3 points as a varsity player.
Hopefully, Franklin chooses to play on Rocky Top and becomes a valuable asset to the Vols. It will be exciting to see where he ends up playing college football and how he’ll continue to develop as a player.
We’ll keep an eye on his journey and update you with any new information as it becomes available.
