DT Derrick Brown
Status: After compiling arguably one of the greatest defensive line classes in school history in 2015, adding another top-10 nationally ranked player like Derrick Brown in this class felt like a bit of a stretch for Tennessee in this class.
But the Vols have stood strong in Brown’s recruitment and have made it to the end – landing the final visit from him and sitting in the final picture with Auburn, Alabama and Georgia all still in the mix. Can Tennessee finish and add yet another elite talent to the defensive front? It might be a slight uphill climb, but the Vols are certainly in the mix.
