The Vols were one of the first major programs to offer George in the spring of 2015, giving receiver-needy Tennessee an early leg up in his recruitment. That paid off early in June of 2015, as the Vols landed a commitment from George shortly after he visited campus.

How He Fits
George is one of the more intriguing prospects in this recruiting cycle. He has rare size – in the 6-5 to 6-6 range – and exceptional athleticism and hands to go with it. He’s not the most polished receiver, and perhaps that’s why he hasn’t blown up in recruiting yet, but he has traits that simply can’t be taught.
He had 46 catches for 690 yards and four touchdowns as a freshman at Dodge City and is looking to build on that. The December graduate is a nice addition for the Vols in 2016 as they look to add some depth to the position.
